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.

102 [Berryman, Clifford Kennedy] (C.K. Berryman) (1869-1949) [Presumed cartoonist, or primary cartoonist, although uncredited] Mother Goose in Gridiron Rhyme. December 1911 A Collection of Alphabets, Rhymes, Tales and Jingles With 80 Illustrations. December Dinner of the Gridiron Club
Washington DC The Gridiron Press December 9, 1911 First edition Wraps Very Good 
Inscribed by C.K. Berryman, the cartoonist, to H.W. Berryman. The inscription states, "This book is inscribed by the illustrator C.K. Berryman". 8vo. 20 by 16.5 cm. 74, [1] pp. Cartoons are of the political luminaries of the day, including many names still recognizable, such as Elihu Root, William Borah, Taft, TR, Robert LaFolette, , Gifford Pinchot, Henry Stimson, Woodrow Wilson, and on and on. Clever rhymes for the ABC and then clever variants of well-known nursery rhymes. The drawings capture the persons depicted with great fidelity yet impressive economy. Berryman began his career as an artist for the patent office before joining the staff of "The Washington Post" in 1891 as an understudy for its chief cartoonist, then becoming its official cartoonist in 1896. In 1907 he left the Post for "The Washington Star" where he drew cartoons until his death. He is probably best known for inspiring the Teddy Bear. The Gridiron Club was founded in 1885 and remains one of the most prestigious press clubs in the nation. The Gridiron Dinner is an annual rite in Washington, often attended by the sitting President. This book is uncommon in the original printing.
