Catalog 63 is Now Available
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. Enjoy!
