A colletion of tales that focus the childhood experiences of famous historical figures, including Titian, Chopin, Mozart, del Sarto and Murillo. "The facts that make up the tales have been gathered through many years and in many places, some from libraries in great American cities and universities, some from dusty manuscripts in museums and private collections across the sea, some from the lips of peasants who repeated legends handed down from the olden time. ... May they lead you into the fascinating world of melody and color; may they open magic gates for you." (Katherine Dunlap Cather). Reprint of the original edition from 1917. With illustrations from M. L. Bower.
