A Child’s Book of Saints
William Canton was a journalist, poet and an author of children’s books such as The Invisible Playmate (1894), W.V., Her Book (1896/97), and A Child’s Book of Warriors (1912). His style in storytelling embodies the legacy of British literature going back as far as Shakespeare and beyond, lending a sophisticated air to prose that is simultaneously charming and accessible.
This book has been painstakingly retypeset in exact imitation of the turn-of-century style of the 1898 original, and includes all the original illustrations including the original cover.
