I'd like to suggest works by Amanda Minnie Douglas. They should all be public domain, since they were all published years before 1923. I haven't actually read any of them, yet, but they seem to have received high praise and are of historical importance.

I've done some research to find out all of her books (as far as I could find), and what order they're supposed to be in. I know two of the series were suggested on this forum before, but I thought I'd include them so we can have all her stuff in one place (for easy access). Note that 'A Little Girl Series' looks similar to Alice Turner Curtis's 'The Little Maid's Historical Series'. There seem to be a number of other authors with books in the public domain that are in similar series, too.

Only one of Amanda Minnie Douglas's works is already on LibriVox (I put a link to the LibriVox recording by it).
