Every Cloud has its Silver Lining, and Other Proverb Stories for Boys and Girls. First Series / One Thing at a Time, and Other Proverb Stories. Second Series

Author: na
Publisher: John Hogg
Publish Date: 1886

Sets of short stories, some of which we have read. We find them to be of very varying degrees of merit, but of good moral tone and teaching.

            Some of the "illustrations," so called, in the first book are very venerable and illustrate nothing in the book, though they may illustrate chapters in the history of wood engraving, from Bewick downwards. Others are not so much curiosities as hideosities. The pictures in the second series are not quite so so-so. The house of Hogg could and should find better little pictures than these to adorn its children's little tales.
