Title

Cock Robin

Description

One reason for the success of McLoughlin Brothers was its early adaptation and commitment to issuing books in series, such as the Aunt Oddamadodd, Fairy Moonbeam, and Big Picture Books series. Retelling stories, reusing illustrations, and repurposing designs in multiple formats allowed the company to maximize revenue, from one-penny books to full-sized picture books like Cock Robin, which sold for thirty-seven cents.
The gift of Herbert H. Hosmer, 1978
