Прекрасно оформленное подарочное издание с ляссе. Трехсторонний золотой обрез. The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries are widely regarded as the golden age of children's literature, both in terms of writing and also of illustration. Practitioners of both arts flourished, producing a canon of works that are still widely read today, and frequently filmed or televised, recapturing those "blue remembered hills". This book brings together a collection of some of the finest tales in the classical English children's storytelling tradition. Illustrated with contemporary line drawings from the finest illustrators of the period, the stories are Anna Sewell's "Black Beauty", Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island", "Just So Stories" by Rudyard Kipling, "The Railway Children" by E.Nesbit, Kenneth Grahame's "The Wind in the Willows", J.M.Barrie's "Peter Pan", and Frances Hodgson Burnetf s "The Secret Garden".
