The Five Children

The text of: The Five Children and It, The Phoenix and the Carpet, The Story of the Amulet

E[dith] Nesbit

It is likely that this collected edition was first published in the U.K. by Ernest Benn, but it has not been found. It may have had a different title so that it wasn't confused with The Five Children and It.

E. Nesbit (1858-1924) was a writer and socialist. In 1880 she married Herbert Bland and with him was one of the founder members of The Fabian Society. Bland died in 1914 and she married in 1917 Thomas Terry Tucker.
