Digitized Children’s Books

The Library of Congress has digitized 50 children’s titles for their collection of Children’s Literature.  Many of these titles are very old — I saw the late 1800s and early 1900s.  For each title, you can read the book page by page, display a PDF for downloading or printing, and query the Library of Congress’ online catalog.

I don’t know much about children’s literature, but some of these may be original printings, e.g., A Children’s Garden of Verses, 1895; Death and Burial of Poor Cook Robin, 1865; Denslow’s Mother Goose, 1901.
