Collection: Children's & Illustrated

Our ever-changing selection of children's and illustrated books is individually chosen on the basis of beauty, excellence of condition and importance. Our stock ranges from chapbooks of the early 19th century to modern classics by masters such as Roald Dahl and Maurice Sendak. We are particularly known for our interest in illustrated gift books of the early 1900s, as conceived by artists such as Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, the Robinson Brothers, Kay Nielsen and Willy Pogany. Classic children's literature from all periods forms the bulk of our stock, hopefully allowing us to satisfy requests from confirmed book collectors and to proffer alternatives to gift-buyers looking for christening, birthday, wedding and anniversary presents.
