This is a facsimile reprint of fourteen books bound in six volumes. It is the second collection of the series of conduct books published during Victorian America.

The collection includes fourteen items in total (including numerous illustrations and plates, reprinted here) which were originally published in the mid-nineteenth century mainly for a juvenile readership. It includes reading books, educational books, poetry books, and picture books by well-known juvenile and educational book authors such as Lydia Sigourney, William Alcott, T. S. Arthur, and Horace Mann, among others.

Like the first collection for small boys and girls, this collection juxtaposes the writings on women and men by the same author and tries to offer an interesting new perspective on gender studies as well as child studies.
