      HOWARD PYLE: HIS LIFE -- HIS WORK

      By Paul Preston Davis

      At the dawn of the 20th century, Howard Pyle was America's most famous and
      influential illustrator. Through the illustrated pages of Harper's,
      Scribner's and Century magazines, the American public first became
      acquainted with the illustrator that they would come to love. Both by
      example and through his teaching, Pyle molded and influenced generations of
      young artists who have continued his unique vision of illustration far
      beyond his own lifetime.

      Published 93 years after the death of Howard Pyle, this book celebrates
      the enduring and far-reaching achievements of America's foremost
      illustrator. Illustrated with over 3300 images, this important research
      tool represents the complete record of all known Howard Pyle illustrations,
      hundreds of which have not been reproduced since their original publication
      over 100 years ago.

      Paul Preston Davis, with exhaustive research and dogged perseverance, has
      produced a much-needed resource for the study of Howard Pyle and American
      illustration. His work greatly expands upon the data originally collected
      by Willard S. Morse and Gertrude Brinklé in 1921. For the first time,
      full-color images (approx. 1.25 x 2.25 inches) of each of Pyle's published
      and unpublished works are provided in a single source. Most importantly for
      the researcher, Davis has indexed and re-indexed the information, creating a
      tool that is as easy to use as it is valuable. This remarkable and
      comprehensive set of books embodies years of research and will be valued and
      treasured by researchers, scholars, librarians, and collectors alike.

      THE DARTONS: AN ANNOTATED CHECKLIST OF CHILDREN'S BOOKS, GAMES AND
      EDUCATIONAL AIDS ISSUED BY TWO PUBLISHING HOUSES 1787-1876

      By Lawrence Darton

      First edition. In 1787 William Darton began engraving and printing
      children's books. Over the next 60 years his firm printed over 1,000 books
      for young people. In 1804, a separate firm of Darton was founded by
      William's oldest son. They published over 1,600 children's titles. The work
      contains the details and bibliography of both Darton firms and an index of
      their artists and engravers. This work is a major reference source on
      juvenilia and the early history of children's books. The author is the
      great-great-great-grandson of William Darton. There are seventy
      illustrations in this work. Co-published with The British Library. SALES
      RIGHTS: Available in North & South America from Oak Knoll Books. Available

      TASHA TUDOR: THE DIRECTION OF HER DREAMS

      By Wm John and Priscilla T. Hare

      First edition. This is the long-awaited, first, comprehensive
      bio-bibliography of one of the most-loved children's book authors and
      illustrators in America and around the world. Not only does this book
      describe Tudor's sixty-year career, but readers will enjoy the poignant
      stories about Tudor written by her two daughters, Bethany and Efner, and her
      editors, Patricia Gauch and Dorothy Haas. The daughter of naval architect,
      W. Starling Burgess, and portrait painter, Rosamond Tudor, Tasha Tudor, as a
      child, was greatly influenced by her father's engineering background and her
      mother's artistic life. She became particularly fascinated by life in the
      1830's, which inspires her art, writing, and her own life. From 1938 onward,
      Tudor's children's books captivated a wide audience. Her fans are still
      intrigued by her magical stories and her romantic illustration of New
      England's countryside, drawn from her own experiences of family life. Her
      work is published in more than 90 books, which have been reprinted and
      republished many times. Now in her eighties, Tudor remains active in
      publishing, meeting her fans, and autographing her books. In loving tribute,
      this work is illustrated with many drawings by Tudor's daughter, Bethany, as
      well as rare early photos of Tudor as a young woman, by Nell Dorr, and 16
      pages of color photos of Tudor's book covers. The bibliography includes
      every known book illustrated and/or written by Tudor, including those
      published in the first half of 1998. SALES RIGHTS: Worldwide.

      LEWIS CARROLL AND THE PRESS

      By Charles C. Lovett

      This comprehensive new work not only provides bibliographical details
      lacking from previous studies, it describes Dodgson's letters, articles,
      games, mathematical problems, and stories in such a way that the scholar
      without access to these rare items will gain an understanding of where
      Dodgson stood on various subjects and the nature of his relationship with
      the public via the press.

      Previously unknown Dodgson items are brought to light in this listing,
      and numerous early reprints are recorded for the first time. Dodgson's word
      puzzles "Doublets" and "Syzgies," which were published on a continuing basis
      in VANITY FAIR and THE LADY are fully described for the first time, and
      dozens of previously unknown Doublets and Syzygies are reprinted. Lovett's
      introductory essay discusses Dodgson's career as both a reader of
      periodicals and a contributor to them, and quotes extensively from one of
      the "lost" periodical contributions - Dodgson material which has not been
      reprinted. Its wealth of new material and full and proper description of
      what has so often been neglected in the past make LEWIS CARROLL & THE PRESS
      an invaluable reference for librarians, scholars, students, professors,
      collectors, and booksellers. Co-published with The British Library. SALES
      RIGHTS: Worldwide except the UK; available in the UK from The British
      Library.

      CHILDREN'S BOOKS IN ENGLAND, FIVE CENTURIES OF SOCIAL LIFE

      By F.J. Harvey Darton

      Third edition. "Not a collection of queer facts or antiquarian scripts" said
      Harvey Darton of his book when it was first published in 1932, but "a
      chronicle of the English people in their capacity of parents, guardians and
      educators of children." Certainly literature was his central theme, but
      through it he wove biography and the facts of social and commercial history.
      Now available again, this third (corrected) edition is at pains to provide a
      text that will sustain Darton's reputation for a new generation of readers.
      Brian Alderson has checked every detail in an effort to ensure that the work
      is accurate by the standards of modern scholarship, and has added a number
      of biographical notes. In a supplementary chapter he has filled out the
      discussion of children's books during the late Victorian and Edwardian
      periods which formed a natural end point to Darton's history, and more than
      sixty illustrations expand upon the text. All these changes have been made
      in an attempt to support the message of Darton's original work that,
      "children's books were always the scene of a battle between instruction and
      amusement, between restraint and freedom, between hesitant morality and
      spontaneous happiness." Co-published with The British Library. SALES RIGHTS:
      Available in North & South America from Oak Knoll Books. Available outside
      North & South America from The British Library.

      1999, hardcover, 6.5 x 10 inches, 416 pages

      THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, A DESCRIPTIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF CLEMENT CLARKE
      MOORE'S IMMORTAL POEM

      By Nancy H. Marshall

      First edition. This bibliography is the first comprehensive work ever
      undertaken to document the publication history of the most famous work in
      all Christmas literature. The Night Before Christmas poem was written 180
      years ago, and it has never been out of print. With more than 1,000 entries

      collector's dream. Mrs. Marshall has spent a lifetime collecting and
      organizing the works listed in this extraordinary bibliography. Seven
      detailed indexes, an historical essay describing the St. Nicholas legend,
      Clement Moore, and the origin of the poem make this an essential reference
      tool for collectors of Christmas memorabilia. SALES RIGHTS: Worldwide.
