New catalogue New York bookfair 2019Published on 26 Fév. 2019
This year we are particularly proud of our catalogue because of its
diversity and the rarity of the material offered.
Therefore it might be worth your time to take a peek in our catalogue
and see if you can find something that you might like. The
catalogue is divided in simple sections: Manuscripts up to 1600,
1600-1800, present day, followed by Printed Books of 15th till 20th
century. There are two final sections covering voyages & exploration
and maps, photographs and prints.
I would add as well we are bringing considerable material to the NYC
Fair that is not in our catalogue (latest acquisitions etc.) so we
look forward to see
you at Booth A16.
Some highlights include, no 1, the Book of Hours, no 34, The Pawky
Pawk's Book of Beasts, no 55, A monumental
Portuguese work on the Persian Gulf and the exploration of the Far
East, no 119, The only portrait taken from life of Philip Freneau and

Spécialités : Livres d'enfants
166 NEW ARRIVALS await you in Catalog 64 (We know it is numbered through 167, but we somehow missed #141). We recently took in a large quantity of Christmas themed books, most of which appear in this catalog, including a rare Elisabeth Ivanovsky illustrated tale of St. Nicholas of Myra by Henri Gheon. Be sure not to miss the American issue of Lewis Carroll's Nursery Alice. We're excited about a first edition of Alexander and the Magic Mouse illustrated by Philippe Fix, which we'd only ever seen as a book club or ex-library copy. We acquired a French language edition of Grimm's fairy tales that we'd never seen or heard of before, illustrated by Gwendolen Mawe, see item #74. On our recent travels to Maine we stumbled on a stunning copy of the John R. Neill illustrated edition of Hiawatha by Longfellow. A nice copy of Jessie Willcox Smith's Everyday Fairy Book fell into our laps, and that doesn't happen everyday! There is much more to see including many signed books, Caldecott Honor books, Newbery Medal and Honor books and lastly we should mention a funny book of cats that you can read about at #28, Die Katzen in Der Schule with artwork attributed to Eugen Hartung. Enjoy![...] En savoir plus

Catalog 63, Summer 2018Published on 16 Juil. 2018
Spécialités : Livres d'enfants
Catalog 63 is filled with ALL NEW ARRIVALS! We present 200 items that we've acquired over the past few months including a first edition of Dr. Seuss' landmark book The Cat in the Hat as well as The Cat in the Hat Comes Back. We also found an early Sendak title we've never seen before, Circus Girl; it is a first edition and it's in beautiful condition. There are so many illustrated editions of Robert Louis Stevenson's Child's Garden of Verses and we had a nice group of them come in, see items 178-184. An uncommon Charles Robinson illustrated title came through our doors, Doris and David All Alone by Elizabeth Marc aka Princess Nusrat, and it retains its original dust jacket! We haven't seen a copy of Tomie De Paola's Strega Nona in years, but now we have a first edition, see item 42. A first edition of our favorite Louis Slobodkin title made its way onto our shelves, The Little Mermaid Who Could Not Sing; it's amusing, fun and teaches a valuable lesson and the illustrations are just perfect. Lastly, we stumbled on a nice copy of the Edith Wharton & Maxfield Parrish masterpiece, Italian Gardens and Their Villas, a first edition from 1904. Frankly, we're tickled. Thank you for taking the time to look at our catalog.[...] En savoir plus
