Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692378715, Paperback)Well known for his poetry and caricatures, Oliver Herford lends his talents to An Alphabet of Celebrities. Each illustration features up to five famous faces, fictional or historical, from the beginning of time through 1900. Though each charming illustration of celebrities is accompanied by alliterative lines that may allude to their identities, the celebrities of 1900 are not always obvious to modern readers. This edition features a complete illustrated biographical index as well as a glossary of challenging words. Front cover illustration is from the entry for E: E is for Edison making believe He’s invented a clever contrivance for Eve, Who complained that she never could laugh in her sleeve. A note on our public domain restorations: Idle Winter Press selects interesting projects in the public domain to publish. Our books are not simply a PDF of an original version, printed and bound with a sub-standard cover. We painstakingly restore images, professionally format interiors, and design quality covers. If the text warrants it, we add an index (or improve the existing one), create diagrams, and research contexts as necessary. Though the public domain text is available for free on the internet, the high-quality, beautifully printed restoration is only available from Idle Winter Press.
