Here's a gallery of images featuring boys. These engravings, which are fairly typical of those in American books from around 1840-1870, are taken from boys' novels, a girls' novel, a teachers' advice manual, and an anti-corporal punishment treatise. Some of these will appear in a book I've written on 19th-century New England boyhood that'll be out in 2009.
