Appleby Books specializes in Collectible and Rare Children's Books in First Edition and also stocks out of print children's titles.

TO SEARCH for an illustrator or publisher, try a keyword search. Keyword and description searches are also helpful for finding subjects in which you're interested. Often the fewest words will return the best results. For example, if searching for items illustrated by Dorothy Pulis Lathrop, "Lathrop" in the keyword field will find the most results, including titles where the illustrator is not the author. If a title contains the possessive case, you may need to use the apostrophe, i.e. cat's.

Or go directly to our Children's Books. Click on thumbnails to see larger images of our scans and photos.

Many of our books are not online. If you fill out our request form we'll be happy to quote you from stock and as new titles become available. We'd be delighted to assist you in building your collection and we look forward to hearing from you!
