You'll find a large selection of vintage children's books from the eighteenth to the twentieth century - from 'Goody Two Shoes' (1747) to a first edition of 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' (1997). Lewis Carroll is a particular favourite and they typically have over 200 illustrated editions of 'Alice' in stock. They also have a large selection of beautifully illustrated 'gift books' of the Edwardian Era, illustrated by the famous artists of the day: Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, Kay Neilsen, Charles and William Heath Robinson.

If you're looking for a first edition of 'Winnie-the-Pooh' or 'The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe' this is the place to come.
