Archive of 6,000 Historical Children’s Books

The University of Florida have digitised the 6,000 children’s books of their Baldwin Library of Historical Children’s Literature and made them available on line for free. This is a marvellous resource and I have added it to the Related Links list on the right-hand side of the blog. Josh Jones gives an excellent introduction to the collection here, tracing the history of children’s literature via the research of M.O. Grenby and pointing to how these books led to the proliferating genres of present-day children’s and YA fiction.
