This set provides a collection of conduct books for children during Victorian America, in a facsimile reprint of sixteen items, including numerous illustrations and plates. It includes reading books, educational books, poetry books, and picture books by well-known juvenile book authors such as John Abbot, Harvey Newcomb, Lydia Sigourney, and Louisa Tuthill, as well as small booklets circulated by the American Sunday School Union. By juxtaposing the writings on girls and boys by the same author or institutions, this collection offers an interesting new perspective on gender studies as well as child studies.
