  • "And true stories if well told, are not only better and more instructive, but more entertaining than fictitious ones. We do not mean to say that all the stories in this volume are true in all their details; but they are true in this, that they speak truly of the habits and feelings of children and youth, and illustrate truly the temptations and dangers to which they are exposed, and the duties they are required to perform, or they relate some interesting fact in natural history"--Preface, page [ix]. Includes stories about Robin Hood and Thomas Wolsey
  • Edited by "Uncle Merry" (i.e., John Newton Stearns)
  • Some engravings variously signed by William Croome, Albert Bobbett, Edward Hooper, John Andrew, Trichon, John D. Felter, George Dalziel, Alexandre David, Edward Bookhout, Edward R. Field, Alfred Swinton, Charlotte B. Cogswell, Jules Gaildrau, Bricher, John Filmer, Butler, New York School of Design, and Nathaniel Orr
