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.

Title   The ABC Nursery Rhymes. Mounted on Linen.

Book Condition   Very Good Minus

Publisher   New York McLoughlin Brothers

Seller ID   003089

N.d., 1890s. Large 4to. 30 by 25 cm. Unpaginated, 16 pp. including wrap covers. Charming chromolithographic illustrations to each nursery rhyme snippet that accompanies each letter. In this book McLoughlin, a master a repackaging, drew from his overstuffed backlist treasure trove for excerpted illustrations and verse, so we have "F" for "A Frog he would a-wooing go", "K" is for "Old King Cole", etc. But some of the rhymes and illustrations may just be new to this book, such as "Z", which is "a Zany, Who was a great fool". Whatever, the case, it is an winsome, and sweet, compilation. On the inside rear cover, where in such books there is often an arithmetic piece, is a rendering of "10 little Nigger Boys". This, as well as the inside front cover, is illustrated in two toned instead of full color. Cover heavily soiled, with minor abrasions at corners. Light soiling within. One corner bumped.
