Seen and Not Heard
An interesting and amusing collection of Victorian writing for children. From the dust jacket blurb: "Brow-beaten by priggish parents and sanctimonious guardians, the Victorian child was robbed of his childhood and given tracts instead. Nigel Temple has selected a quantity of these improving tales and pious horror stories, and he presents them in this anthology with many of their original pictures. It is an ideal gift book: unusual, profusely illustrated both in colour and black-and-white, and most beautifully designed." Colorful dust jacket in very good condition.
