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.

Very Good Minus 
N.d., circa 1860. The card measures 17.5 by 11.5cm. Depicted is a gentleman in a top hat, blue coat and checked pants. When you pull a tab at the bottom, his pants rise to reveal his spindly legs. The verse beneath reads: "Why are pegtops worn by noddies,/ Is't to ornament their bodies;/ Or is it__Oh! great Jove, I see/ The secret lies twixt you/ and me." Slight loss of lace at edge, by upper right corner. Light wear besides.
