From one of the greats of children's book illustration, 'Filles et Garçons - Scènes de la Ville et des Champs' presents the second half of twenty scenes** originally published by Hachette in 1887 under the title of 'Nos Enfants'.
This late 19th century book with text by Anatole France features charming frozen moments of childhood in chromolithographs after the watercolour sketches of Louis-Maurice Boutet de Monvel. The book is available from the University of South Carolina Digital Libraries.
