Posted in Beinecke Library, Modern General Collection by beineckepoetry on February 26, 2009

Enciclopedia de la Infancia, a complete run of a little-known periodical published to educate children by the director of the Escuela Normal Mercantil in Valparaiso, Chile in 1857.
The editor, Enrique M. de Santa Olalla, appears to have produced the majority of each issue by hand.
