Prints in 3-5 business days
The adventures of five brothers and sisters growing up in rural England in the late nineteenth century. It was the great poet Swinburne who wrote of The Golden Age as "one of the few books which... More > are well-nigh too praiseworthy for praise. The art of writing adequately and receptively about children is among the rarest and most precious of all arts". In its pages, alive with memories of the author's boyhood, a troupe of clever and imaginative youngsters carry out their pranks and adventures, evoking youth for every reader. To illustrate these tender and mischievous reminiscences, there is a new series of drawings depicting the scenes and characters of the stories. These were made especially for this edition by Ernest H. Shepard, whose art reveals that rare duality of appeal to both youth and adult, to each of whom the classics of Kenneth Grahame are perennially addressed.< Less
