The wonder clock: or, Four & twenty marvellous tales, being one for each hour of the day 13 editions

Cover of: The wonder clock by Howard Pyle
About the Book

24 wonderful stories, one for each hour of the day (clock), each with frontispiece (woodcut?) by the author, who also collected and illustrated the stories in the book (perhaps he wrote some of them as well). The hourly frontispieces also described what was going on in The House at the hour in question. Pyle's pictures and text were antiquarian, quasi-medieval. My parents read these to all of their 5 children aloud over the years (1930s-1950s), usually on hot summer afternoons. We LOVED them.

13 editions First published in 1888
