  • Leslie McGrath

Abstract

The Osborne Collection of Early Children’s Books is Toronto Public Library’s research collection of historical children’s literature, book-related art, archives, games, and ephemera. The Collection has grown exponentially since its founding in 1949, and its use has evolved. This paper will provide a brief description of our holdings, and may encourage researchers in the field of children’s literature to explore the wealth of research possibilities that Osborne has to offer.
