Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item


St. Nicholas magazine for children was a familiar sight in American households at the turn-of-the-century. This popular periodical offered children wholesome entertainment in the form of stories, novellas, and poems. Stories about dolls were particular favorites among girls of yesteryear, and this nostalgic collection--the only one of its kind--contains more than one-hundred fiftyof them. These charming stories by such classic authors as Frances Hodgson Burnett, Louisa May Alcott, and Sarah Orne Jewett speak to us from long ago, when children passed the hours reading on front porch swings or in gaslit parlors. Period illustrations throughout, reproduced from the pages of St. Nicholas, give the book an enchanting, antique look. Here is a book that takes us back to a simpler, more innocent time. It is the perfect gift for doll lovers, young and old."
