Cloth, 4to, 29 cm, 466 pp, ills. "From the uniquely rich and varied collection of children's literature in the Library of Congress, here is a rich sampling of writings and illustrations created for young readers in America from colonial times to 1900. They are reproduced here - many in facsimile - from the originals, some of which are extremely rare. The authors have provided thoughtful introductions to each section of reading, and an informative caption accompanies each selection of prose or verse. The works also speak for themselves, as generous passages, and even complete books, are included. Taken together, they provide a unique insight into what adults of that era felt most worthy of imparting to young minds, of passing on to the future; they are thus a sort of 'time capsule,' a fascinating segment of social history, as well as a vigorous and varied body of writing for children. Here is The New England Primer of 1773, 'Parson' Weems's Life of George Washington, The Tales of Peter Parley About America (by Samuel G. Goodrich), and the famous History of Little Goody Two-shoes. There are samples of traditional and popular tales, rhymes, riddles, and street cries, as well as chaphooks, primers, story-books, and magazines. An unusual early version of Clement C. Moore's 'A Visit from Saint Nicholas' and a delightful edition of 'Yankee Doodle' illustrated by Howard Pyle, are reproduced in full color. Excerpts from such classics as Elsie Dinsmore, Uncle Remus, The Little Colonel, Sara Crewe, and the Peterkin Papers are included, along with lesser known but charming works by American writers and illustrators. There is a rich selection of stories first published in such magazines as Juvenile Miscellany, St. Nicholas, and Horace E. Scudder's Riverside."- from the blurb. Slight wear at head of spine, otherwise Good in a used dustwrapper which is torn on the spine. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-05154
