"Mary Elliott (then Mary Belson) began writing for children in 1809, at a time when increasing literacy and wealth and more progressive understanding of the reading needs of children were creating a growing demand for more and more books for young people. Beginning with two books in verse-one a lively tale about town and country mice, the other, an anthology including many of her own poems-she went on to produce a stream of books on a variety of subjects. Her stories, some eventful and exciting, were mostly about real children learning to tackle the every-day circumstances and difficulties which they encountered in the world around them. These books were made all the more attractive by her publisher, William Darton, who provided them with entertaining illustrations, many of them interesting today for their depiction of contemporary scenes and fashions...This bibliography contains about 470 entries, detailing not only each known edition of her books but also the picture-sheets, reward cards and combined volumes of assorted tales and verses, all of which made such notable contribution to the reading of early 19th century children.." from the blurb.
