Treasure Seekers and Borrowers : Children's Books in Britain 1900-1960.
Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, 162 pp, ills. From the blurb: "Here in this comprehensive survey of children's books in the twentieth century can be found all the old favourites - and many lesser-known works which deserve better recognition. Many writers have resisted the standardisation of the age and have written books which are individual, contemporary and enduring. Names like Beatrix Potter and Edward Ardizzone, E. Nesbit and Mary Norton, Kipling and Rosemary Sutcliff represent the highest reaches of this century. On the other hand, the 'formula' stories are not forgotten, since they play their small part in the development of taste. The author, who is on the staff of Kent County Library, has also edited Chosen for Children, an illustrated account of the books awarded the Library Association Carnegie Medal from 1936 to 1957." Covers spotted, otherwise Good in slightly used and price-clipped dustwrapper. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-36739
