No place: no publisher, 1933. Ephemeral promotional broadside produced in support of A.S.W. Rosenbach's Early American Children's Books. The broadside reprints Charles F. Heartman's favorable American Book Collector review of Rosenbach's book, praising "the Doctor" for the breadth of his vision: "he has succeeded in robbing the dreary religious aspect of most of the early publications of its unattractiveness by injecting humorous remarks and reverting to a philosophical treatment. Regardless if one is a collector of children's books or not this is a scholarly book about books that should have a place in every collector's library." Heartman notes that the foreword by American collector A. Edward Newton makes Rosenbach's book "a necessary item to any collection of Newtoniana" as well. One copy recorded, in the Charles F. Heartman Papers at the University of Southern Mississippi; we handled a second copy in 2015. A very good copy of a striking broadside. Color-printed pictorial broadside, measuring 17.5 x 12.5 inches. Two faint creases from folding, several small paper repairs and evidence of previous mount to verso, one short closed tear.
