The Children's Friend, Being a Selection from the Works of M. Berquin

BERQUIN, (Arnaud)

Regular price $100.00 Sale

Berquin's stories were somewhat different from other children's stories, being written for the family to read together. They depicted family life as he thought it should be, and he is credited with being one of the main defenders of what has became known, almost two centuries later, as the nuclear family.
