Baby's Own

I found this fantastic online resource of classic children's books at the Library of Congress more or less by accident.


You can flippity-flip your way through all manner of pretty books here.

And here's one of my very favourites: Walter Crane's Baby's Own Aesop (1887).  So lovely.


I have a miniature edition of this somewhere ... the trouble with miniature things being how easy they are to misplace.  I see that I could pick up a first edition for the quite reasonable price of $400 on ABE.
