The Child's Cabinet: A Christmas and New Year's Present
 Picture
Publisher: Jeremy L. Cross, 1833 New Haven, CT.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "'Mingle the useful with the agreeable, ' is a rule which applies to every subject, and to persons of every description. All utility and no pleasure, is like all work and no play; and is hardly preferable to its opposite, an engrossing desire for amusement, without any regard to real advantage. This rule, we say, is applicable to all. Yet there is perhaps a class whose case it meets with most exactness - those who naturally love play; who, beyond all others, are anxious to secure the pleasure which each object may afford, but forget to look whether it possesses any thing of value. To benefit and interest such as these, the Child's Cabinet has been undertaken. It is particularly designed for the perusal of the middle classes in sabbath schools, who have made some progress in the instruction there given, yet have not engaged in the more mature studies of bible classes. The pieces are chiefly in the form of narrations - that form being the best calculated to fix the attention. The subjects, throughout the work, are arranged under distinct heads, or departments. Care has been taken, to give a sufficient variety of departments and subjects, and to intersperse them in such a way, as to add to their interest. Among the departments, there is one on Natural History, and one on Missions; both of which subjects, it is apprehended, are too seldom urged upon the attention of children and youth. In all the pieces strict regard has been had to morality; and wherever it would not seem to have been done by force, pious reflections have been introduced. A large proportion of the articles are selected; some are original, and have been written expressly for this work. It has been thought unnecessary to give credit in every instance of selection, as the parts selected are generally mere extracts, and brief. We commit this little book to those who are interested in its object, and trust they will find it an acceptable, instructive and useful new year's gift." Illustrated with engravings. 156 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

Grahame, Kenneth; illustrated by Maxfield Parrish.  
Dream Days [Association].

Publisher: London and New York: John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1902..
First Edition thus Green cloth decorated in dark green, black, gilt and a touch of red, showing a castle above a river. Decorated endpapers, top edge gilt with others untrimmed. Illustrations by Maxfield Parrish, 8 full page black and white plates with tissue guards, illustrated title and endpapers, and frontis illustration (a different version of one of the other illustrations). This format is identical to another Parrish illustrated Grahame book, "The Golden Age". ASSOCIATION: This book has a caligraphic plate tipped on the first blank which reads, in full: "This book is the gift of Mr. and Mrs. Foulkers Edwards to the Mary Harbage Chidren's Literature Room at Wright State University. Mr. and Mrs. Edwards live in Hampshire England. She is the daughter of Arthur Rackham whose books are the heart of the Mary Harbage Collection." Note that Wright State is in Dayton Ohio (named after the Wright Brothers). Note also that Rackham's last book illustrations were for Grahame's "Wind in the Willows" in 1940. While this book has a library connection, there are no library marks. There is a previous owner bookplate on the front endpaper. Binding is sound but the front endpaper is beginning to crack. The cover illustration is bright and very attractive. The covers have light edge wear and the wear to the spine ends has caused minimal loss of surface color.

Publisher: London: Frederick Warne & Co., 1929..
First Edition Octavo, about 8 inches tall, in lavender cloth decorated in green, gilt and purple. Top edge gilt. 158 pages illustrated with 4 color plates, color illustrated endpapers, 18 drawings in the text. The Potter foreword discusses the existence of fairies within protected lavender gardens. A nice copy in dustjacket. The book covers are bright and clean with barely a hint of extremity wear. Pages 4-9 are heavily stained as though they received a nasty spill, but there is no evidence of moisture exposure, and the bordering pages show no such staining. The book is otherwise clean; the binding sound. The jacket is complete with light edge wear and moderately darkened with a couple of spots of soiling. The surface of the front panel appears to have abrasions so that the darkened surface is chipped away, but this does not affect the cover illustration.

Greenaway, Kate; music by Myles B. Foster.  
A Day in a Child's Life.

Publisher: London: George Routledge & Sons, No date [1881]..
First Edition Small hardcover quarto. Green cloth spine with light green paper covered beveled boards. 29 [30] pages illustrated in color. A collection of songs with delightful illustrations on every page. Schuster & Engen, 66. This copy differs with their first state in the following ways: this copy has beveled boards, called for in a later state but not the first; this copy has off white endpapers, not light green as called for in the first state; this copy notes the publisher's London address on the title page while this is not noted in Schuster. However, Thomson, 31a, does include the publisher's address and beveled boards in the first state. So, this copy's is variant only with respect to the color of the endpapers (green in all four states noted by Thomson). ". it was in this book that Kate Greenaway first showed her full power as a painter of flowers." Osborne, p. 63. All edges green and sunflower decorated boards with ruled borders as called for in first state making this clearly earlier than the fourth state noted by Schuster. A remarkably well preserved copy with covers lightly worn at extremities, and inside edges of the pastedowns just a little faded. Interior clean, binding completely sound, text just slightly toned. Very nice. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good+

Quiller-Couch, Arthur; illustrated by Kay Nielsen.  
In Powder and Crinoline: Old Fairy Tales.

Publisher: London: Hodder & Stoughton, No date [1913]..
First Edition LIMITED EDITION, #151 OF 500 COPIES, SIGNED BY THE ILLUSTRATOR. Quarto in full green vellum decorated in gilt. 163 [164] pages. Illustrated by 26 tipped in color plates by Kay Nielsen with captioned tissue guards (the trade edition had 24). Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. This was the Danish illustrator's first book upon moving to England in 1911 and the idea and design were his. Dalby, Golden Age, p. 89-90. Horne, p. 334. The style is suggestive of the Middle East, but very original. This production is sumptuous. The untrimmed edges are a bit soiled; the endpapers are lightly soiled and very lightly foxed; the front fixed endpaper is rippled at the edge from the bowing to the front cover. While this bowing is moderately severe, this behavior is typical in this dry climate. The vellum may very well relax a bit in higher humidity. The covers are lightly extremity worn; the front cover has two dime-sized spots of fading (source unknown), and the back cover has some surface scratches and a deeper scratch (more likely a bump) of about an inch long. Otherwise a clean, sound copy. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good

Top edge gilt, decorated endpapers. Most but not all stories in verse.

Irving, Washington; illustrated by Arthur Rackham.  
Rip Van Winkle.

Publisher: London: William Heinemann, 1905..
Third Printing Thus, 1907 Small quarto, a bit over 10 inches tall, in green cloth decorated in gilt. 61 [62] pages plus the full complement of 51 color plates tipped in on dark green mounts, 50 of which are at the back of the book, one a frontis. In many ways, the book that made Rackham's reputation when first published in 1905. Cf. Latimore & Haskell, p. 26 (citing first trade edition). Spine is modestly sunned; extremities lightly worn with a bit of fraying at the corners of the spine ends. Front cover gilt is bright, but there is a very light bump to the fore edge. Previous owner's armorial bookplate on front endpaper. Title and half title lightly toned with very sparse foxing elsewhere, usually on the tissue guards. The binding is sound with hinges unbroken, but at the midpoint (where text gives way to illustrations) there is a one-inch long break at bottom and the first tissue guard is tearing. This may be the result of an old repair. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good
