"For this, the second volume in Milestones in Children's Literature, Victor E. Neuburg has written an admirable study of the famous 'penny histories' or chapbooks which formed almost the entire reading matter of the poorer people in eighteenth-century England. At a time when children's literature had a strong religious and didactic basis, these little paperbound books, however crudely produced and illustrated, kept alive traditional tales of romance and adventure, and fed the imagination of young and old alike. Facsimiles of seven of the 'penny histories' are included in the present volume, and there is a detailed bibliography of source material." The chapbooks included in facsimile reproduction are: The History of Guy of Warwick; Fairy Stories; The Interesting Story of the Children in the Wood; An Elegy on the Death and Burial of Cock Robin; A Peep at the Various Nations of the World; Toads and Diamonds; The Rod. Includes a section on chapbooks in America. Tiny mark on verso of free front endpaper, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, one small edge tear - archivally taped.

Kansas City Andews and McMeel 1995 0836204875 / 9780836204872 Hard Cover Fine Very Good+ Maxwell Perkins. 
213 pp, large 8vo (9 3/16" H). B&w drawings by Maxwell Perkins, photographs. "Among book editors, none is quite so revered as Maxwell Perkins. During the years he worked in New York City's Charles Scribner's Sons, the legendary editor helped brilliant minds focus thoughts into literature, shaped manuscripts into classics, then championed writers into best-selling authors. F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe, Ernest Hemingway, and Marcia Davenport were only a few authors who had Perkins to thank for at least some of their success. Behind the scenes, however, this literary genius was a devoted father to five daughters - Bertha, Elizabeth, Louise, Jane, and Nancy. Because he wanted the girls to know and love the family homestead in Windsor, Vermont he sent them there every summer and corresponded with them daily. From thoughts about the people he met to reminiscences of favorite family vacations, Perkins provided a vivid presence in his daughters' lives, whether he was with them or not. In (this book), the touching correspondence Perkins created for his daughters has been gathered into a memento of a great man. It is obvious that Maxwell Perkins was more than just a noted editor - he was a man with a deep and abiding love for his family." Dust jacket has soft crease along top edge of rear flap.

73 Retan, Walter and Risom, Ole. (Richard Scarry.) THE BUSY, BUSY WORLD OF RICHARD SCARRY.
New York Harry N. Abrams 1997 0810940000 / 9780810940000 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good- Richard Scarry. 
159 pp, 4to (12" H). Pictorial endpapers, profusely illustrated throughout in color and b&w with photographs and reproductions of Scarry's work. "In dozens of books, with hundreds and hundreds of illustrations, Scarry revealed to kids that the everyday world was a place that could be understood - and that learning was fun. Scarry's 'Best Word Book Ever', for example, puts names to everyday objects; 'Busy, Busy World' explores geography country by country; and 'What Do People Do All Day?' delivers exactly what the title promises. Such a man is worth knowing more about, and this first biography presents the debonair, humorous, charming figure that Scarry was. In words and pictures the book traces (his) life from his roots in Boston to a post-World War II art school training and a brief career in advertising. Bored with selling products, Scarry put himself forward as a children's book illustrator and began turning out pictures for other people's words. Soon, he himself was writing texts, and eventually he hit upon the magic touch that catapulted him to nearly universal popularity - a menagerie full of animal characters who behaved like humans, but with unfailing good humor and grace. Through the personalities of these often mischievous creatures - the ubiquitous Lowly Worm, Tinker and Tanker, Sergeant Murphy - whom children could identify with but not have to worry about, Scarry conceived a parade of books that parents and children alike could pore over for pictures or read time after time. Long before Waldo challenged young eyes to find him in picture books, Goldbug was hiding here and there on Scarry's pages. Learning more about the charm of those books and the genius of the man who created them will enlighten and delight any reader of this book." Small tear (archivally taped) at bottom edge of title page, very light wear and a few tiny dents at bottom edge of boards. Dust jacket has light edge wear, edge wrinkling, one small tear archivally taped, crease at top edge of front flap.

166 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w reproductions. "The purpose of this study is to give an annotated bibliography of the books and discuss the authors whose words were handprinted by the Woolfs. It has proved easiest to investigate the books and understand how their authors came to be connected with the Press by considering them in groups based on their relationship with the Woolfs. Of course the Woolfs printed their own works and that of their friends. They also printed work by people they admired and wanted to encourage in their endeavor to reach the public eye. Since most of these people developed careers of some note, it is possible to give an indication of their relationships to the Woolfs and what these particular books meant to them at the time of publication." From the Introduction. Contents: List of Illustrations; Preface; Introduction; The Press in the Lives of the Woolfs; Books by the Woolfs; Books by Friends; Books by Acquaintances; Books by Worthy Unknown; The Woolfs and the Book Arts Tradition; Illustrations of the Books in Order of Publication; Appendix A: List of Handprinted Books in Order of Publication; Appendix B: List of Handprinted Books in Order by Author; Notes; Bibliography; Index.

"Anthony Rota, dealer in antiquarian books and first editions for over half a century, talks of the private collectors and university libraries whose collectiions he has helped to enrich over these years, remembering his colleagues in the firm and in the trade generally.

As past president of the Antiquarian Book-sellers' Association, and of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (of which he is now President of Honour), these lightly written memoirs, may be read as a guide to collectors and dealers alike, or, more simply, for the sheer pleasure of their reading."

This is the first annotated critical bibliography of Hart Crane. The appendix is a chronological index of all works about Crane arranged by year of publication. This important bibliographical work should be of great use to student and scholar."
