The Sea Children

Walter Russell's story of fantastical adventures underwater, carefully restored

Decades before beginning his work on natural philosophy, a young Walter Russell self-published his very first book, The Sea Children. A collection of adventures that loving cast the children in his own life as princes and princesses of the ocean - fighting battles, discovering treasure, and exploring their underwater world.

Restored page-by-page from a Library of Congress archival scan and printed on large 8.5" x 11" pages, the stories and illustrations of The Sea Children come alive again for the first time since its original publication in 1901.
