Forgotten Tales.. Lucas/Bedford, ill. Stokes 1906 1st.

Forgotten Tales of Long Ago.

A companion volume to his "Old-Fashioned Tales" (1905). Twenty stories from early writers for children 1790 to 1830, intended to be representative. Lady Anne, the longest story in the book, is a lovely riches to rags to riches tale that shows the lives of the poor in the early 19th c. Charming illustrations: Lucas says, "Mr. Bedford is one of those rare artists who read a story first."
