22482 Merry-Go-Round, panorama, Doris Stolberg. 1944

Merry-go-round. Doris Stolberg 1944, 45" Panorama

On each panel, a merry-go-round animal of character ridden by a happy child; in the background, green fields and blue sky, a few people and circus tents. Each little girl has a unique pretty dress: perhaps Stolberg also designed children's clothes? Little is known about her. Toy production was restricted during World War II to save materials, thus we see many modest paper books intended to be played with.

22476 Reward of Merit four cards Greenaway

Reward of Merit Cards, set of four tiny cards by Kate Greenaway. circa 1890, Children's walk in winter.

Very sweet little children, warmly dressed in muffs and scarves and giant hats, take a winter walk with a compliant puppy. Tiny little cards that came to us in a small, darkening Brentano's envelope post 1905 at least. On the envelope, handwritten in ink, "4 honor cards by Kate Greenaway, about 1890, not recorded in Spielmann". (but  they are in Schuster #293, picture pg 200 and Thompson p 296.) The maroon bonnets are identical to those in the Schuster images. The pictures may be familiar because a coloured plate was included in the Kate Greenaway Birthday Book (Routledge 1880). Note: this has been SOLD.

22469 Frisk and his Flock, Mrs Sanford 1877/1876

Frisk and His Flock. Mrs. Sanford, 1877/1876.

This is a school story, and Frisk is a school dog who takes the children's safety and promptness seriously. It describes the daily life of one of those small town 19th c schools run by educated women by subscription, schools which are none the less open to those in need. The teacher guides the children's moral growth tactfully and their recitations are accompanied by thoughtful questioning and extensions, as they learn at their own pace. If they have been diligent, the last hour of the day is reserved for projects and reading aloud. After school, the children can run down to the river, or go on pleasant walks and wagon rides, before returning home for the chores needed to help their families. In short, an idyllic situation, with a gifted and beloved teacher.

Miss Agatha guides the children toward helping the white poor of the village in a dignified way, so it is a shock to see the unspoken racial prejudices and the gently patronizing customs toward people of colour held by liberal New England society intrude on this scene. Mrs. Sanford was the eldest of 10 children in an Episcopalian minister's family, and the wife of a minister, with 6 children herself, so she knows children's inner feelings well. A good writer, very popular in her day, whose books were often beautifully produced, like this one.

22263 Bayard, Pierre Belves, illus.,Pere Castor Panorama. 1946

Bayard, une frise a colorier. Père Castor Panorama. 1946, Pierre Belvès, ill.

From 1944 to 1947 Pierre Belvès, also an artist and an educator, created 16 short friezes for Paul Faucher (for Père Castor). This one, Bayard, opens like a book, showing two knights facing, then opens again from the center, revealing a long frieze with three scenes from Bayard's life. On the back are the two knights, the title page, and a page of text telling the story of this medieval knight and giving some hints on watercolour and gouache. These friezes would make a nice small collection. Most are hard to find including this one.
