American Children Through their Books 1700 to 1835, 1948 Monika Kiefer
This collectible vintage book, first edition 1948, illustrated and with foreword by Dorothy Canfield Fisher, reveals the changing status of the American child during the Colonial and National Periods by examining juvenile literature of the time.
Chapter titles such as "War with the Devil" and "The Art of Decent Behavior" with illustrations indicate the approach of the author.
The red hardcover book measures 6" x 1/8" x 9 1/2 x 1" and is 248 pages long.
The lower right hand corner of pages 97/98 has been torn off, but is included. Otherwise, this book is in very good condition. Firm in every way, a little browning on all pages, no markings and slight signs of shelf wear.
