From the cover: 

Period illustrations of children, especially of children being themselves, are difficult to come by/ only in modern times has childhood been considered an independent, self-contained stage in the lifespan. Some of the finest illustrations of children as children come from 19th-century wood engravings valued today for their scarcity and their capacity for sharp, precise reproduction. The book is intended to supply artists with references for this period. These illustrations are copyright free.
