20416 Sweet Girl Goldie by Humphrey.

Sweet Girl Goldie, a wonder story of butterfly time.

A quiet brown butterfly conceals beautiful bright lithos within of Sweet Girl Goldie and her adventures. Effusively written, but just barely a fantasy. When the little girl "rescues" her uncle's butterfly specimens and takes them out to live on the flowers, their dry bodies fall on the ground. Thinking Goldie meant harm, the Queen Butterfly calls her subjects, who seize the golden strands of the little girl's hair. But her uncle explains that he is the culprit, and from then on the butterflies flock lovingly around Goldie wherever she walks. Elizabeth Bullock Humphrey (1841 - 1889) was a noted card designer for Prang and the author/artist of several books, including Western Americana. Her child models, probably including Girl Goldie, came from her home village of Hopedale, Massachusetts. Prang mounted a retrospective and issued a book in her name after her death..
