About this title


St. Nicholas magazine for children was a familiar sight in American households at the turn-of-the-century. This popular periodical offered children wholesome entertainment in the form of stories, novellas, and poems. Stories about dolls were particular favorites among girls of yesteryear, and this nostalgic collection--the only one of its kind--contains more than one-hundred fifty of them. These charming stories by such classic authors as Frances Hodgson Burnett, Louisa May Alcott, and Sarah Orne Jewett speak to us from long ago, when children passed the hours reading on front porch swings or in gaslit parlors. Period illustrations throughout, reproduced from the pages of St. Nicholas, give the book an enchanting, antique look. Here is a book that takes us back to a simpler, more innocent time. It is the perfect gift for doll lovers, young and old.

About the Author:

William C. Carroll has long been an admirer of the literary legacy of St. Nicholas magazine. He is an educational consultant and resides in Denver, Colorado.

Store Description

Books are a gateway drug. It starts out innocently enough, reading C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, pretty soon you are reading harder stuff like Kerouac and Burroughs, the next thing you know you're strung out on Bukowski and DeSade, worrying about the Patriot Act and Free Speech, and joining the ACLU. If books are your drug of choice, Last Word has your fix!
