CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE

Ooh, the French!  They were particularly successful in publishing beautifully illustrated and finely printed books in small format.  La Petite Corbeille de Fleurs (The Little Flower Basket) combines superb printing, exquisitely designed illustrations and an imaginative binding with very attractive text.  Its 8 superb plates, one more gorgeous than the other, are hand-colored and the title page is both hand-colored and illuminated in gold. The text describes over 70 flowers in prose and verse.

The holidays are coming! A special section of 17 miniature Christmas books is included in Catalog 87.  Seven of these are no taller than 1-1/4” and quite suitable for a dollhouse. All are photographed.  More Christmas books can be found on this website…just scroll all the way down to “Christmas Books”.

Other highlights include:

#7, a most beautiful locket (French, of course) with clear captioned photographs of Joan of Arc   SOLD

#12, Barbara Raheb’s hand-colored lift-the-flap book, The Twelve Days of Christmas

#46 a lovely leather-bound Victoria Miniature Almanack and Fashionable Embracer for 1886

#63, Leslie Gerry’s stellar book on New York with illustrations that were “painted” on the computer

#84, 85 & 86; the 3 parts of Massmann’s hard-to-find a record and a sampler, only 45 copies of each

#95, a complete 9-volume set of William Pickering’s Plays of Shakespeare, rare with 38 engraved plates.

To enhance your enjoyment of this catalog, nearly all of the books are photographed.

Happy Holidays to you!
