The Old Story Books of England


I checked this little volume out at the library, then looked it up online to discover it's been digitized so it's available to all. Not only that, there's a whole treasure trove of links to British titles at

Amazing. All these out-of-print, public domain works available in one collection.

To look at The Old Story Books of England, go to

It's absolutely lovely. My library version is a black and white reprint but the online edition is in color and it's beautiful--12 illustrations by different artists.
