Catalog 72: Summer 2022
I meant to get a winter catalog out the door, but then March rolled around and it was too late. Then I tried for a Spring catalog, but May snuck up on me. So, here we are in early June and I finally put a list together. This catalog is mostly new arrivals with about 50 selections from our inventory.
Some of the highlights include Ronald King's limited edition pop-up ABC, ALPHABETA CONCERTINA; a first edition of Lloyd Alexander's Newbery Award winning THE HIGH KING; an uncommon book illustrated by Florence Mary Anderson, PASSWORD TO FAIRYLAND; Margaret Wise Brown's DAVID'S LITTLE INDIAN illustrated by Remy Charlip; a selection of BABAR books; Julius Hoppner illustrated edition of UNDINE; signed D'Aulaire books; the signed limited edition of I AM A PUEBLO INDIAN GIRL; Johnny Gruelle's GRIMM'S FAIRY TALES; a signed copy of Dorothy P. Lathrop's Newbery Honor book, THE FAIRY CIRCUS in dust jacket!; a fabulous French book by O'Galop (pseud of Marius Rossillon) who created the Michelin man, the book is titled LE DIRIGEABLE CAGE-A-MOUCHES NUMERO UN; and a rare WWII era book written and illustrated by the children of unoccupied France, LE MERVEILLEUX VOYAGE DE AL GOUTTE DE VITAMINE.
