Title : Children's literature digital collection

Description :
The Children's Literature Digital Collection is an online collection of selected texts (some full-text) from a specialist collection held by Roehampton University Library. The physical collection is used to support the work of the National Centre for Research in Children's Literature, and consists of: reference books; journals; and children's literature from the 19th and 20th centuries. The digital collection comprises a small part of the collection, but would be of interest to book historians as well as those researching English literature and educational studies. Works on the site include: 'Black Ivory' by R. M. Ballantyne; 'With Clive in India' by G. A. Henty; and 'Countess Kate' by Charlotte Yonge. The works are provided either as separate chapters or as one file in PDF format. Synopses and bibliographical information are also provided for each work.
