The Penny Histories: A Study of Chapbooks for Young Readers Over Two Centuries (Milestones in Children's Literature)
by Neuburg, Victor E.
For this, the second volume in Milestones in Children's Literature, Victor E. Neuburg has written an admirable study of the famous penny histories or chap books which formed almost the entire reading matter of the poorer people in eighteenth-century England. At a time when children's literature had a strong religious and didactic bias, these little paper-bound books, however crudely produced and illustrated, kept alive traditional tales of romance and adventure, and fed the imagination of you and old alike.
