About This Item

London, England: B.T. Batsford Ltd., 1985. First British Edition, Later Printing 4th Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine. Lavishly illustrated overview of children's books published in England over these three critical centuries. In 256 pages with Index & 100+ illustrations throughout text. Both scholarly & of value to collectors! Contains the new preface to the Third Impression, which updated much of the previous information. Hardcover with deep green cloth-covered boards, gilt letting to spine, & DJ. Orig. published in 1954 & reissued in 1969 & 1979, this is the Fourth Impression from 1985 from B. T. Batsford of London. Both book & DJ are in Near Fine-Fine condition: completely lean, binding strong & straight, pages white. NO writing/underlining/highlighting; NOT ex-lib. Only flaw to book is bumped corners; otherwise virtually flawless, as is the bottom-clipped DJ (with L20 price still at bottom)--beautifully protected in new archival mylar. Please see our 5 photos--they show the EXACT book you will receive from us, never "stock' images! Description & photos copyright Gargoyle Books 2020. Same Day Shipping on all orders received by 2 pm Weekdays (Pacific time); Weekends & holidays ship next business day.
