Minders of Make-Believe: Idealists, Entrepreneurs, and the Shaping of American Children's Literature. New York: Houghton Mifflin, (2008) tan paper boards, red spine, red and tan jacket; large 8vo; 402 pp including notes and index.

3/11 Not yet reviewed, but the early chapters make a complex subject, early American publishing, clear and interesting. Hard to put down, actually. The notes, which serve as bibliography as well, have lead me to new sources.
