Back just before the turn of the twentieth century when my grandfather was about ten years old he received a copy of A Child's Life of Christ that is in my library today. It is full of wisdom that is as relevant today, for both children and adults, as it was years ago when it was first published by Henry Altemus of Philadelphia. It was in print by Altemus under a series of company names from 1895 until 1933. As a result the originals are all over seventy five years old and many are over a hundred.
A Child's Life of Christ is too good a book to be allowed to fade into embrittled and yellowed obscurity. It has been newly typeset and carefully compared to the originals to avoid changes from the text as it was over a hundred years ago when my grandfather first read it before the dawn of the twentieth century.
As with the Altemus edition, 49 illustrations are included since as it says in the original preface: "We have introduced a profusion of illustrations, regarding them as being very important in a narrative of occurrences so distant from this modern life of ours, both in time and place."
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
