Description

In 1787, when William Darton set up as an engraver and printer, there were few books published especially for children. Over the next 60 years, more than 1,000 books (plus games and educational aids) for children were published by the firm of Darton and Company. This checklist contains details of their output of juvenilia and is a major source of reference for scholars of the history of the book.
