Title

A.B.C. of Objects for Home and School. Kindergarten First Book

Description

During the golden era, McLoughlin Brothers continued to produce products that appealed to a broad age range of readers, from pre-readers to advanced students. McLoughlin Brothers also continued to work collaboratively with other publishers when it proved beneficial. The firm partnered with Griffith, Farran, Okeden & Walsh of London, a publisher that produced titles for educational use including craft books, hymnals for Sunday schools, and books for Kindergartens. German immigrants brought the concept of Kindergarten to the United States in the 1850s, and by the 1890s hundreds of schools for young children were operating from Boston to San Francisco. This wordless book, likely printed in Brooklyn by McLoughlin Brothers and distributed to schools around the world from London, features full-page chromolithographed illustrations of animals and objects associated with each letter of the alphabet.
The gift of Herbert H. Hosmer, 1978
