Used, collectible, and out-of-print books -- good books -- for children and young people of all ages!

All books are hardcover except for a very few which are plainly marked. Orders are subject to prior sale. Books are always returnable for any reason!

Shipping is $2.50 for one book, $.50 each additional, but free shipping on orders over $50. Orders are sent by US Mail, book rate, which take 5-10 days.

Abbreviations I've used are: Ill.=illustrated or illustrator; f/p=full-page; b/w=black and white; FE=first edition (may be the first edition by this illustrator); DJ=dust jacket; o/w=otherwise; dec=decorative; Ex-lib=ex-library book with markings accordingly; FFEP=front free end papers; c=copyright; BCE=book club edition.

The grading I've used: Mint=like new; F=fine; VG=very good, better than average; G=good, average wear and tear; Fair, reading copy, but all there. If there are two gradings (i.e. VG/VG), the first is the book, the second the dust jacket.

Sizing is as follows: 6"-7", 16mo; 7"-8", 12mo; 8"-10", 8vo; 10"-12", 4to; larger than 12", folio.
