Books for Boys: Heroism, Empire and Adventure at the Dawn of the First World War

Saturday 11 February – Sunday 23 April 2017

FREE ENTRY

Books for Boys explores the cultural landscape in the decades leading up to the conflict and in particular, the influences on the young men who so readily volunteered in 1914. 

The exhibition celebrates a Golden Age of books for children and many of the authors whose work is displayed remain popular today. The late Victorian and Edwardian era introduced readers to classics such as The Jungle Book, as well as new genres, such as the spy novel.
