Medium Size Hardback in Good Condition, the cover edges are slightly scuffed and the top edges of the pages are a little grubby (as in photo)

At Home Again is one of the outstanding picture books of the late Victorian period, long sought after by collectors. Macmillan have now produced a slightly shortened version in facsimile.

This charming and decorative book was first published in 186 as a sequel to to earlier books (At Home and Abroad) but is much superior to them in the quality of illustration and colour printing. Intended for the Victorian child 'at home', the gentle contemporary verses and superbly set off by the delicate designs and subtle colouring of the illustrations. Certainly a book for the child of a hundred years ago to treasure and keep.

Each poem and its setting provides a vignette of an aspect of life in a Victorian home which still engages our attention nearly a century later. This fascimile reprint gives today's children and adults the opportunity to enjoy again the fresh and distinctive charm of this delightful picture book."
