100 Nineteenth-Century Rhyming Alphabets in English by Professor Ruth Baldwin B.A. B.S. M.S. Ph.D.

The library of Ruth M. Baldwin contains, at the present time, about 35,000titles and editions of childrens books in English, all before 1900and mostly from the nineteenth century. Though a small part of the outshy;pouring of childrens books in English in the nineteenth centuryestimated to be as much as a quarter of a million volumesher library is probably unique in its equal representation of American and English childrens books. How many of the books published were rhyming alphabets is difficult to say. These hundred books presented here, certainly a small part of the whole, bear publication dates around the early part of the second half of the century, and represent the whole century well, for true childrens book publishing did not precede this by much. nbsp; Children and readers in general as well as students of childrens literature should find this book of books interesting. The alphabets reproshy;duced here are included in their entirety, many of them in color, and are grouped thematically under such topics as nature, animals, and farm life.
