The Brownies Primer by Palmer Cox (PDF ebook) – One of the most popular children’s illustrators in the late 1800s was Palmer Cox, who created the amazing “Brownies” for the pages of ST. NICHOLAS magazine in the 1870s, and later a whole series of Brownies books.
Cox drew incredibly intricate pictures of his playful Brownies, often with hundreds of brownies on every page. Amazingly, each brownie character was unique and possessed its own personality.
