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 Winnie Buckman Album of Watercolor, Ink and Chalk Drawings
Cloth Very Good 
N.d, circa early 20th century. Oblong, 25 by 18 cm, 10 by 7.25 inches. With fourteen illustrated pages, mostly in bright color, all by the same hand of gifted amateur by the name of Winnie Buckman. The drawings are both typical subject-wise of teenager artist's and friendship albums of the day and yet mostly on the highest level of what one tends to find in such albums. On the FEP is written in pencil "A prize awarded for art by Miss Oxley". This probably means that the blank album was given to Miss Buckman as a prize, and it indicates that her talent was recognized in her small girlhood community, Illustrations include one of a clownish man with big feet, Dutch children following geese with a windmill in the background, a pierrot strumming a banjo, the silhouette of an eighteenth century lady and gentleman, a boy and his dog, a woman wearing harlequin tights awhirl in dance, children at the shore, a few Mabel Lucie Attwell style infants, a silhouetted eighteenth century lady with parasol and actual fabric used for the front of her dress, portraits of a man and of a woman wearing a kimono, and a harbor scene. Generally clean.
