364 pp, 8 11/16" H. B&w illustrations. "(A)n account of the development of children's books in the United States, Britain, Canada, and Australia, (this book) has long been acclaimed as an invaluable guide and resource for parents, teachers, and students alike. The third revised edition faithfully maintains all the strengths of the earlier editions - concise, informative coverage of a vast subject - and includes a totally rewritten Part Four that provides a fresh, detailed investigation of aspects of the modern world most relevant to books for children and young people during the years 1945-1985. The result is an extremely readable and stimulating survey of imaginative writing (including poetry and picure books) accompanied by a superb bibliography of works on children's literature and dozens of illustrations from many of the books mentioned in the text. (The author) offers an enthusiastic, balanced - and sometimes controversial - view of a subject of interest to everyone who cares about the quality of books written for children." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor soiling, small remainder mark on bottom of text block, very light browning to pages. Dust jacket has minor edge wear, light edge wrinkling, tiny dent on front hinge, very light rubbing.
