Kate Greenaway was one of the most admired children's book illustrators of the Victorian British era. This treasury collects more than 300 of her most darling drawings — simple, expressive, and filled with the gleeful innocence of youth. A charming selection of images gathered from Greenaway favorites, including Under the Window, A Apple Pie, Marigold Garden, and other unforgettable publications, this wondrous collection captures the uncomplicated pleasures of day-to-day nineteenth-century life: children and families and mothers in comfortable country clothes . . . laughing, skipping, playing, and eating home-baked apple pie right out of the oven! Expertly reproduced in full color and sharp black-and-white.
