Description

This third edition of From Instruction to Delight contains a rich survey of children's literature from a time period spanning the middle ages to the mid-nineteenth century. The selections represent a remarkable variety of literary forms, including Latin colloquies, Puritan cautionary tales,
gentle Christian lyrics, and nonsense ditties - many of them accompanied by their original illustrations. Editor Patricia Demers draws on an ever-growing body of scholarship devoted to children's literature to place each selection in the context of its era. Several selections are new to this
edition, including some of Chaucer's writings for children, more early Canadiana, and the full text of Sharpe's Puss in Boots with its original illustrations.
