DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES IN THE REALM OF CHILDREN'S LITERATURE Lanes, Selma G. 1971 Atheneum , New York First Edition. Hardcover. Size : 8.8" tall. 240 pages. Features * An essential reference work for the purveyors of Children's Literature. Jacket Design by Maurice Sendak. B&W Illustrations. Notes * From the blurb inside the dust jacket: "Are children's books merely a subtle form of propaganda through which we feed each generation's offspring sugar-coated doses of current adult beliefs, hopes and concerns?" asks Selma G. Lanes in this spirited book worthy of attention in every home where literature is cherished. As she seeks and fìnds answers in Down the Rabbit Hole, the author distinguishes the true literature of early childhood from the quantites of dross annually published. She reveals as well those "sensibilities that speak not sweet nothings but such truths as put the children and adults who read them in closer touch with their inner selves. With humor, perception and a rar ... Read more

Parry, Michel

London: Redemption Books, 1995 Novel about the bloody Countess Elizabeth Bathory that was adapted for the cinema by Hammer Films in the 1970s.

With photographs by Chris Bell. Based upon the screenplay by Jeremy Paul derived from Valentine Penrose's The Bloody Countess. "In medieval Europe aging Countess Elisabeth rules harshly with the help of lover Captain Dobi. Finding that washing in the blood of young girls makes her young again she gets Dobi to start abducting likely candidates. The Countess - pretending to be her own daughter - starts dallying with a younger man, much to Dobi's annoyance. The disappearances cause mounting terror locally, and when she finds out that only the blood of a virgin does the job, Dobi is sent out again with a more difficult task." Countess Elizabeth Bathory.

Little Orphan Vampires

Rollin, Jean

London: Redemption Books, 1995 Vampire novel that was adapted for the Cinema, with photographic stills from the film. Henriette and Louise Alexandra are blind orphans. They live at The Glycines Orphanage where they are among Sister Martha's favorites. She calls them her "angels", but angels they are not. In fact, they're vampires. They are blinded by daylight, but when the sun goes down, they see perfectly, albeit in blue. During the night, while everyone sleeps, they slip out of the orphanage and go to their "true home", the cemetery looking for blood. At times, they sit amongst the graves and talk about their travels, the interesting creatures they have met (like the she-wolf and the ghoul), their previous lives, and where they might have come from. They have reincarnated so many times that the memories are dim. They like to think of themselves as blood-drinking goddesses for whom the Aztecs performed human sacrifices. Translated by Peter Tombs from the novel, Les deux orphelines ... Read more
