Children's Illustration 2

The Virtual Children's Books Exhibits website is hosted by Cotsen Children's Library at Princeton University, and showcases items from Cotsen's collection of children's materials dating from the 15th century onwards. The site is divided into four virtual exhibits, entitled: 'Water Babies'; 'Magic Lantern'; 'Creepy-Crawlies'; and 'Beatrix Potter'. Each exhibit consists of images taken from books or works that relate to the overall theme. The images are accompanied by brief descriptions and where relevant, publication and date information.
