Excerpt from Recollections of Auton House: A Book for Children With Illustrations These reminiscences are written to satisfy the Auton who com posed them, and to amuse the Autons who may read them. Grown up people never cease to be young. They are only old boys with hats and whiskers, and old girls with frizettes and eye glasses, that 's all. There are many Auton houses in the land, and lots of Auton children wandering over it, but the original Auton House is gone forever, and we can only catch the echo of its revelry in our ear, and detect a smack of its good cheer lingering on our tongue.

A sort of memoir of a prosperous New England childhood by the ninth of 12 "Autons" identified only by first initials, "C. Auton" being the pseudonym of the author, Augustus Hoppin. There are nurses and cooks, shenanigans and near-catastrophes, a perfectly loved mother who suffered chronic dyspepsia, and plenty of humor somewhat along the lines of Cheaper By the Dozen or My Family and Other Animals. Not too sure about the "a book for children" subtitle. It's very very 19th century in style and subject matter (published in 1884, set sometime before the Civil War,) and peppered with on-the-page "air quotes" that drove me crazy. Still, I rather enjoyed it. Finely illustrated with Hoppin's pen-and-ink drawings, the physical book is an impressive piece of work, although my ex-library copy is a bit worse for age and wear.
A little research has informed me that Auton House was in Rhode Island, that Mother Auton's father was Governor William Jones of that state, and that many of the young scoundrels grew up to be doctors, lawyers, or merchants like their father. Augustus himself was a noted illustrator. I'll just keep this novelty on my shelves. ( )
