Most recent e-catalog:

Catalog 71 ~ March 1, 2018








#41 The Nursery Library.  London: G. Routledge and Sons, [1880].  $850.


The featured book shown above is one-of-a-kind.  Eleven nineteenth-century children’s books were bound together in a rich gorgeous binding.  I am confident that the binder was L. G. Challenger, a friend of Louis Bondy’s and an antiquarian book dealer by trade, as was Bondy.  Challenger sometimes “signed” his bindings with a crest that had his initials “L.G.C.” below the crest.  This book has no such marking but style-wise it is clearly a fine example of a Challenger binding.  Challenger sometimes bound facsimiles but more often, he rebound antiquarian books.  This volume contains 11 titles from The Nursery Library, bound as one.  The titles are:  Reading Book, Alphabet, Nations, Spelling Book, Animals, Fishes, The Book of Objects, Trades, Games and Toys, Flowers, and Hymns and Songs.

Three Aunt Laura books published by Breed, Butler & Company are offered on page 2 of Catalog 71, BUT nearly all of the 30 books in the Aunt Laura/Aunt Fanny series are available.  Please inquire!  Prices are dependent on rarity and condition.

Item #63 is Msgr. Weber’s latest book, titled Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C.  Its frontispiece is a new Forever stamp honoring Father Hesburgh during a dedication ceremony on the campus of the University of Notre Dame where he served as president for 35 years.  The text highlights Hesburgh’s background and many accomplishments.

Mark your calendars!  MBS Conclave XXXVI will be in Charlottesville, Virginia, from August 10-13.
