Kingston, NY, U.S.A.
Following a career of nearly thirty years as a dealer in rare and early children's books with Justin G Schiller Ltd, BATTLEDORE LTD was incorporated in 1988 to branch into new but related directions following our personal interests that extend and expand beyond the antiquarian book world. We have strong holdings in works by the children's book artist Maurice SENDAK, and represent notable Caldecott Award artists as may be gleaned from our exhibitions at WORKS ON PAPER. We have published books on diverse subjects from "ALICE in Wonderland" to "Dutch Decorative Arts" and are currently preparing a book on "Mao and the Art of Propaganda". We acquireded Catalpa Press in 1998 from the estate of an old friend and now offer their unique line of Monographs of Victorian Artists and Illustrators. We also have a selection of important children's book publications, references and bibliographies of diverse subjects including monographs and facsimiles from The Osborne Collection (Toronto), publications from the Cotsen Children's Book Library (Princeton University) and other noteworthy sources. We constantly update our list and will respond to serious inquiries for special wants. Justin G Schiller and Dennis M V David
