At The Book Market we call our children’s section “Nostalgia Corner”

Children’s books from 1850 to the present day. Enid Blyton, Biggles, Billabong books, Snugglepot & Cuddlepie, Blinky Bill, Tolkien & Harry Potter etc.

Lewis Carroll’s Through The Looking Glass

Just added to our collection are a couple of absolute classics. A first edition of Lewis Carroll’s “Through The Looking Glass”, published in 1872, restored to very good condition, and scarce as such.

Mollies Staircase by Annie & Ida Rentoul

Also the very sort-after first (and only) 1906 edition of “Mollies Staircase” by Australian mother & daughter, Annie & Ida Rentoul (later Outhwaite). Ida Outhwaite is one of the most collectable Australian children’s authors & illustrators. This early copy of her work is in exceptional condition, and rare as such.
