A Bibliography of 19th Century Children's Series Books by Cary Sternick


A Bibliography of 19th Century Children's Series Books by Cary Sternick. Published by the author, 2003, trade paperback.

Packed with useful and carefully researched information, conveniently gathered into one volume. I quote below from the author's website, www.henryaltemus.com, but there is much more. Because this book has extensive listings of 19th c publishers and their street addresses and corresponding dates, almost any children's collector would find it a valuable bibliographical aid. Reasonably priced.
