ILLUSTRATED CHILDREN’S BOOKS July 2014
Our latest children’s book list offers an engrossing array of books from the 1850s to the 1950s. As usual there’s much enlightening and enjoyable between these covers… If you’re ever concerned about the violence that young people are exposed to nowadays, you might be relieved to know that innocents of 100 years ago were being molded by tales such as that of Morgiana in “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves” (1858 edition) who pours boiling oil into the large jars containing the 40 thieves “thus stifling and killing them all.” Or take a look at the beautiful interior of the home of the Three Bears as depicted by Frederick Richardson in “Old Old Tales Retold. Volland Edition. Eight Best-Beloved Folk Stories for Children” filled with other full page color illustrations of many favorite tales.

VINTAGE HOUSE PLAN EPHEMERA - the American dream from 1890 to 1950By Old Imprints
VINTAGE HOUSE PLAN EPHEMERA - the American dream from 1890 to 1950 “Home reflects character. More, it moulds character. Home is the image of thought, exposed, inviting the gaze of the world. As your home is, so are you. Then make your home as you want to be—in good taste, dignified, ennobling, to be admired” (Building with Assurance, 1921). The dream of home ownership has been a constant in the American psyche for more than a century; this selection of house plan booklets from the 1890s to the 1950s demonstrates how diversely it has been realised, mirroring the profound changes in the lifestyle of the American middle class.
