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.
