Yesterday's Classics

Yesterday's Classics

Yesterday's Classics is a wonderful resource for some of the best classic literature for children ever written. They republish classic books from the golden age of children's literature, the era from 1880 to 1920. Many of the titles they offer have been out of print for decades and have been hard to find. Now your children can enjoy these books that delighted generations of children at the beginning of the twentieth century.

They have a great list of available titles—over 220 with new titles published regularly. You will find history books from several civilizations, including Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, the Middle Ages, and Great Britain. Works of classic literature include poetry and hero tales. A number of nature books round out their offerings.

All of the titles are offered in high-quality paperback editions, with text cast in modern easy-to-read type for today's readers. The illustrations from the original volumes have been included except in those few cases where the quality of the original images was too low to make their reproduction feasible. Except where noted, color illustrations in the original volumes are rendered in black and white in these editions.
