Reprint. [First: 1977, Thus] From the cover: “In the late nineteenth century, Kate Greenaway gave to children’s literature such beauty and charm as it had never known before (and has seldom known since). Her books had “a true dignity and importance”, said Robert Lawson. “Children were regarded as real, intelligent human beings, worthy of the very best draftsmanship, imagination, and publishing integrity”. The Kate Greenaway Book contains an account of her life as well as a sparkling selection from her works, both words and pictures — some never before published, all delightfully arranged for readers of every age to enjoy.”
