She has brought together over 2000 teaching aids produced by the Darton firms of booksellers between 1787 and 1876. Her details checklist includes table games, dissected puzzles, alphabet pastimes, writing sheets, and, especially, print and maps for the infant school market.” - Iona Opie (Item Id: 107482)
