Catalogue Note

With the writing and publication of The Story of the Treasure Seekers, and the creation of the Bastable family, Edith Nesbit initiated a completely original way of writing for and about children, and more or less single-handedly invented the modern children's adventure story (see Julia Briggs, Oxford DNB).
