Yesterday's Classics republishes classic books for children in high-quality
paperback editions. These books, first published in the golden age of children's
literature from 1880 and 1920 and long out of print, are reprinted
in modern easy-to-read type for today's readers. The illustrations from the
original volumes have been included except in those few cases where the quality of the
original images was too low to make their reproduction feasible. Color illustrations in the
original volumes are rendered in black and white in these editions.
