We maintain an inventory of 3,000 children's and illustrated books for beginning to advanced collectors. We are especially strong in 20th Century American picturebooks, Newbery and Caldecott Award & Honor books, early 20th Century illustrated books, fairy tales and folklore.
Catalog 62, Spring 2018 Catalog 62 celebrates many affordable books from our inventory as well as fabulous new arrivals such as Lois Lenski's Newbery Honor book, Phebe Fairchild, which is inscribed by her; Maj Lindman's uncommon book, Dear Little Deer; Panorama de Fleuve in book form, redesigned and translated to Down the River; Marianna Sloan's only book for children Rainbow Rhymes which she illustrated; we offer a signed copy of Madeleine L'Engle's Many Waters. This catalog has many signed books, foreign language fairy tale books, folk tales and of course a nice variety of Caldecott and Newbery Medal and Honor books. Thank you for taking the time to look at our catalog.
Catalog 61, Winter 2018 Catalog 61 delights with its selection of beautiful and obscure children's and illustrated books. We are pleased to offer a rare piracy of Beatrix Potter's first book, A Happy Pair, it is an advertising vehicle for Fischer's Mustard. If fanciful verse is your thing, The Ballad of the Be-Ba-Boes by D K Stevens will not disappoint; the artwork is jolly fun, too. We are gushing over the Gustaf Tenggren illustrated DIckey Byrd, an early and uncommon work of his. Edmund Dulac has always been one of our favorite illustrators, so we are thrilled to have two jacketed titles, Love of the Foolish Angel and The Green Lacquer Pavilion, plus "the lavender" edition of My Days with the Fairies. Other highlights include a beautifully printed German alphabet Book Tierbilder ABC mit Reimen; Rudolf Mates illustrated The Magic Flutes; Children's Corner in the original dust jacket, illustrated by H. Willebeek Le Mair; and Child's Book of Myths in dust jacket, illustrated by Margaret Evans Price. As always we also offer a diverse selection of picture books and children's literature including Caldecott Award and Honor, and Newbery Award and Honor books. We hope you enjoy our latest catalog!
