Title

Children's books published by William Darton and his sons : a catalogue of an exhibition at the Lilly Library, Indiana University, April-June, 1992

Description

This catalogue describes an exhibition of children’s books published by William Darton and his sons, Samuel of Gracechurch Street and William and Thomas of Holburn Hill, during the period between 1787, when William Darton published his first book, to the late 1830s. Darton and his sons published works that expressed the ideals propagated by the Society of Friends, in which they served as active members, and the exhibition includes works on the abolition of slavery, educational reform, and the tolerance of “curious characters.” Items included in the exhibition have been drawn from the Elisabeth Ball Collection, with some additions from the Virginia Warren Collection of Old London Street Cries.
