Wladyslaw Theodor Benda (1873 – 1948) and Wladyslaw Theodor Benda (Russian Site with large scans)

Merry Christ and Happy New Year!

Baldwin Library of Historical Children's Literature - Christmas
These old books are kind of fun to look through during the Christmas season.  Below is just one of the 180 Children's books related to Christmas.  I love the color lithographs.  There is also a funny version of Jack and the Beanstalk that was given out by the historic Drury Lane Theatre in 1899. 

The Night Before Christmas (1901-1910)
