Evertype: The Admiral's Caravan

Postby Evertype » Tue Feb 22, 2011 3:10 pm

Evertype would like to announce the publication of a new edition of The Admiral's Caravan, written in 1891 by Charles Edward Carryl and illustrated by Reginald Bathurst Birch.


From the back cover:

The Admiral's Caravan appeared first in serialized form in the children's periodical St Nicholas beginning in 1891; it was published in book form first in 1892 and remained in print for many years. Previously, in 1885, Carryl published another children's book, Davy and the Goblin.

The Admiral's Caravan is one of the last important works of nineteenth-century American children's fantasy published before The Wizard of Oz appeared in 1900. The story takes place—as such stories often do—on Christmas Eve when young Dorothy embarks on an adventure with the Admiral, the Highlander, and Sir Walter Rosettes, three wooden statues who come alive on that magic evening...
