And we have a lot of new things…
This collectible 1957 first edition of They Rode In Spaceships is a gem, if only for it’s illustrations:
Super cool gift for the believer in your life. $25
…but you probably shouldn’t because they go together so beautifully and the cover is phenomenal. This copy of Willie Mouse by Alta Taylor, illustrated by Ernest Aris is from approximately 1915. It has some scribbles and writing in it and the wear of a well-loved children’s book- Certainly more charming for the character and sense of history they provide.
The colors are so vibrant. Really stunning. $50 SOLD
Yes, we are judging this by it’s cover because it’s a really cool one. It makes us want to look inside where it gets even better. The book is Napoleon Jackson by Ruth McEnery Stuart, 1902, and yes, we love illustrations, covers, interiors and typography as much as the words on the page. Very rare to find a book with African American subjects like this one from that era.
Isn’t this nice? There are several more like it inside. $10
