From the blurb: "In From Primer to Pleasure, an introduction to the history of children's books in England, Mary Thwaite looked at the past from the viewpoint of children's books today. For this revised edition she has changed the title to From Primer to Pleasure in Reading and added material dealing with children's books in other countries than England so that the section "Children's Books Abroad" deals with titles published in the United States, Canada, Australia, Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and Scandinavia. Illustrations include reproductions of covers or title pages of outstanding children's books, and there are extensive chapter bibliographies". Top edge slightly duststained, otherwise Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper which however has a closed 2 inch tear at the top of the front hinge. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-22992
