With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

1 Keerl-Thoma, Hedwig Tier Bilderbuch Mit Bildern und Versen
Stuttgart Loewes Verlag Ferdinand Carl First Edition presumed Paper pastedown on boards Very Good Minus 
N.d., early 20th century. (There was a later version printed in 1945 in Zurich.) Title, followed by 18 color plates depicting various animals -- flamingos, an owl, mice, a stork, pelicans, monkeys, a parrot, a peacock, a squirrel, a turkey, rabbits, swans, hares, ducks, a cat, a dog, a snail. Accompanying each illustration is a rhymed couplet. The color of the plates is rich; the style, simple and winsome. The paper stock, alas, was acidic, and so the pages are brittle, with some cracking resulting, never affecting the pictorial images. A few discreet repairs with inconspicuous achival tape along hinge of a few of these leaves. Still a scarce, and delightful, title. The front cover has some minor loss to the paper pastedown, and the paper is somewhat soiled, rubbed, worn. 
Price: 175.00 USD
