Come along to Bath Library before the end of March to see our book group's display of beautifully bound classic children's books from the Library's collection. They are in two secured glass cabinets next to the Reception Desk. Many are now available to read online or as ebooks. They range from Seagull Rock by Robert Black (1872) to a 1954 edition of Visitors from London by Kitty Barne, the first Carnegie winner (1940) to go out of print.
There's an English Struwwelpeter by Dr Heinrich Hoffmann with its frightening illustrations of the boy with enormously long fingernails, and many other much-loved titles to stir childhood memories.
