Children’s Book Illustration from the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries at the British Library

Via the intriguing ‘Playing by the Book’  blog by Zoe Toft, I have been reminded that last month the British Library released from a selection of 17th, 18th and 19th century books over 1 million imagess which are available on Flickr for anyone to browse and use.

The pictures are organised in sets; one is ‘Children’s Book Illustration –  found by the community from the Mechanical Curator Collection’
