LIMITED EDITION of 500 copies, this is number 166. The FIRST EDITION in book form of an essay that first appeared in The Book Lover's Answer, July, 1965. Miniature Book. 2/38 x 1 15/16 inches. [vi], 106, [2] pp. Black-and-white frontispiece of the title page for an American edition of Janeway's A Token for Children, and 15 other black-and-white illustrations from vintage children's books, front free end-paper and colophon embellished with hand-drawn flower illustrations; text clean, unmarked. Gilt-stamped red cloth; bindings slightly askew, front paste-down beginning to come up. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR on the colophon. Very good. This book is an extended mediation on the pleasure that can be gained from the ownership and study of children's books published in ages past. Alla T. Ford was born in the Ukraine, the daughter of a Czarist general. She was educated at the Sorbonne, and, later, in 1957, was one of the original 16 members of The International Wizard of Oz Club. She helped establish science-fiction and children's book collections at the Universities of George and South Florida.
