This book tells the story of and illustrates the objects and images made for nurseries during more than a hundred years from the middle of the nineteenth century. It follows the rise of the nursery, with the nanny in the role of surrogate mother, to its decline in the face of modern egalitarianism, traces the development of nursery decor...and shows how a child's upbringing was influenced by taste and fashion.
