What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

A delightful children's book by the notable children's author Juliana Horatia Ewing. Ewing was a 19th century children's writer, whose christian faith was an incredibly influential on her work. Unlike many of her peers, Ewing was incredibly sympathetic towards the lives of children, and were incredibly well received. Published by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, the oldest Anglican mission organisation, who produced and distributed a large quantity of Christian literature. Charmingly illustrated throughout, with depictions by R. Andre. A desirable work of nineteenth century children's literature, very scarce to find in any edition.
