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 Aldin, Cecil and John Hassall The Happy Annual
New York; London, respectively E.P. Dutton & Company; Produced by Carl Hentschel First Hardcover Very Good Aldin, Cecil 
Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. N.d., circa 1910 (date of inscription on FFEP). Very rare title with color, four tone generally, illustrations. Unpaginated, 40 pp including title. A potpourri of stories, poems, and humor. The first part is devoted to a quintessential Aldin subject of dogs and foxhunting entitled The Nursery Harriers: The Story of a Hunt, but with a difference inasmuch as the horse is a hobbyhorse. The final pages of the book are devoted to various children's games of the Middle Ages: bowls, tobogganing, skating, sliding, golf, quintain, cricket, football, etc. Also some illustrated nursery rhymes and snippets of other children's classics (Robinson Crusoe, Aladdin). Throughout delightful and less familiar Aldin illustrations, all 14 by 10 inches in size. Soilage on rear boards and to a lesser extent on front board. Blistering to endpapers. Otherwise tight and clean and very good if not better. 
Price: 200.00 USD
