In The 1800s, Board Games Were Impressive Works Of Art –
An impressive collection of board games from the 1800s, which shows us what British children were playing in the 19th century! Published by the book editors between the Georgian and Victorian eras, these board games were made with wood or linoleum engraving, then hand-colored. At first simply playful, it is at this time that the creators of games introduced the concept of educational game, including in their board games notions of geography, mathematics or history.
This amazing collection of vintage board games, amassed for years by Ellen and Arthur Liman, is published today in the book Georgian and Victorian Board Games: The Liman Collection.
