Georgian and Victorian Board Games: The Liman Collection by Pointed Leaf Press

SKU: Georgian and Victorian Board Games
Description

As the turn of the 18th and 19th century approached in Great Britain, more and more parents and teachers embraced a suggestion from the philosopher John Locke, that “learning might be made a play and recreation to children.” Georgian and Victorian Board Games: The Liman Collection beautifully demonstrates board games from the time. Showcasing 55 such games that were made for both instruction and delight, the book reflects on a trans-Atlantic market that flourished into and through the 19th century. Although games were often printed on linen or board instead of delicate paper, many fell apart thanks to enthusiastic use. But those that do survive open a window onto the time period in which they were created, reflecting its social and moral priorities as well as nearly every educational subject. Georgian and Victorian Board Games: The Liman Collection enables us to follow the course of the Industrial Revolution and the expansion of the British Empire alongside changing attitudes toward childhood and education—shining a light on a corner of children’s culture and the adults that created it.
