Book review

From Simple Simon and Jack the Giant Killer to Old Mother Hubbard and Puss in Boots, this treasury of stories and rhymes abounds in the beloved characters of childhood lore. The nonsense verses, animal fables, morality tales, and other traditional narratives—all illustrated with extremely rare drawings—represent the finest examples from the first century of children's literature, 1750–1850. In addition to lesser-known homilies and chants, they include early versions of Red Riding Hood, Jack Horner, and other nursery favorites that vary markedly from the familiar renditions.
A bonus CD-ROM includes digital JPEG files of all the illustrations, offering rare images to graphic artists, scrapbookers, advertisers, and all enthusiasts of early book illustration. A unique reference for collectors of children's books, this volume will appeal to readers of all ages.
