The Story of Mankind Online


No, I'm not talking about a history of the internet. Here are a couple of links to online editions of the first Newbery winner - The Story of Mankind, by Hendrik Willem van Loon, which won the medal in 1922 - at this Prize-Winning Books Online page produced by a University of Pennsylvania librarian. The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle, by Hugh Lofting (1923 winner) and several early Newbery Honors books can also be found through this link, along with lots of early Pulitzer and Nobel prize winners.

Thanks for posting this, Sandy! I was especially pleased to see so many early Honor books online. My academic library curriculum collection has copies of all the winners, but many of the early Honor books were either not purchased or have since been discarded, and are no longer in print.
