Kronheim's kids chromolithographs are some of the most stunning pictures. These selections from Old Friends and New Faces were published by Cassell, Petter, and Galpin in 1869. They are pure joy.

Here's an informal description of the plates:

Yes, Dobbin's a horse. The dogs converse next to him.

That cat "plays the pipe for his meat."

"Dr. Donkey kep a school For all the brute creation"

Here's a sly..Fox, Trying to appear devout..Do you think those well-fed Cocks Know what Reynard is about?

Those dogs make fitting lawyers, British wig and all.

Those kids will get their Daddy monkey.

Robinson Crusoe

Here's an informal description of the plates:

He sits working. The dog sits besides him.

She brings him his meal.

His gun at his side, beside the water.

They look out on the water.
