19784 LittleMotherWinnie anon Lothrop 1880's

Little Mother Winnie and other Stories

Very pleasant, happy little stories about helpful small people, but without pointed morals, as Daniel Lothrop was particularly interested in improving the fare available to young children. Some of the illustrations seem to have been created for this volume, some taken from the files, but stories and pictures work well together. Perhaps the practice was to pull illustrations from the publisher's collection and write little stories to go with them.



19624 ABC Petits Contes by LeMaitre, ill JOB

ABC Petits Contes.

Nearing the end of his life, LeMaitre, a beloved French writer for children, worked on a collection of child-tested stories that would form an alphabet, some original, some adapted from Anderson, Perrault, and others. World War One delayed the publication of this volume, so this beautiful book was published after the author's death. What a pleasure to see a book illustrated by JOB for little children!
