This took me back to childhood

It’s always a bit serendipitous when one randomly discovers a blog post on a book that transports one right back to childhood.  This copy of ROBIN HOOD by Paul Creswick. (Philadelphia: McKay, 1917), illustrated by N.C. Wyeth, was one of the  volumes in my tiny personal library. I also owned well-worn copies of Treasure Island, Rip Van Winkle, Robinson Crusoe, The Mysterious Island, and The Yearling, all illustrated by Wyeth. Each of the books was a flea market find that often had significant wear, but I treasured them nonetheless.
