Forgotten Children’s Books


During the summer, our student worker, Claire, created a few gifs, which we’ll be sharing over the next few months. One book that she selected is an atypical book in our rare book collection. It’s Pages and Pictures from Forgotten Children’s Books: Brought Together and Introduced to the Reader by Andrew White Tuer and published by his Leadenhall Press.

Our copy contains some notes at the beginning.



Of course, the title page has been perforated with Rice Institute Library.


The title page of an instructional book.


Claire’s cool gif from that book.


A lovely advertisement at the end of the book.
