KIRKUS REVIEW

Like his earlier Bouillabaisse for Bibliophiles (1955) this current omnium gatherum on old and rare children's books is seductive, informative and lively. The introduction features the joys of book collections with definitive guidance on how one may acquire a nucleus of good books. Authors, scholars and collectors write on various aspects of the children's field -- general history from hornbooks to current comics; biographies of Newbery, Bunyan, Louisa May Alcott. Something for every taste here, illustrations galore and a wealth of history, humor -- and nostalgia.
