I've been buying a lot of new stock recently and thought you might enjoy a sneak preview.
Sweeny's Adventure written by Joseph Krumgold and told by John Kieran. The story is based on the motion picture 'Sweeney Steps out'. Sweeney and Bombo a little toy elephant have quite a time of it on a visit to the Bronx Zoo. I was immediately attracted to the Tibor Gergely artwork on the cover. The colour illustrations inside are also by Tibor Gergely. Now sold, thank you for your interest.
I've bought several pieces of sheet music this month but Woody Woodpecker and the teddy bear's picnic are my favourites.
Sadly, the teddy bear’s picnic is incomplete, the seller failed to tell me the centre page was missing. It's too pretty to throw away so I've listed it with a note about condition. The teddy bear's picnic and Woody Woodpecker are now sold, thank you for your interest.
This very different looking edition of Alice through the looking glass was purchased from a bookseller’s catalogue.
It's a centenary edition prepared by the Lewis Carroll Society, with text that has never appeared in precisely this form. It is basically the 1897 edition, the last which Lewis Carroll himself corrected, but also includes all Carroll's corrections for the People's Edition of 1887, which were somehow overlooked in the preparation of the final text. There are forty remarkable drawings by Ralph Steadman; the White Knight bears a striking resemblance to the familiar photographs of Lewis Carroll himself. Now sold, thanks for looking.
I hope you've enjoyed this quick preview.
Update July 2016: March House books closed on my retirement in 2015, but I do still blog here at March of Time Books and always appreciate your visit.
