Collecting Rare Children's Books at Shapero Rare Books

Children's Books @ Shapero Rare BooksChildren's books remains one of the most popular departments here at Shapero, both in terms of visitors to our Mayfair shop who are often drawn to and entranced by the classics of children's literature gracing our shelves, as well as those visiting our website or following us on social media.

From first editions of Beatrix Potter to signed first editions of Harry Potter, via a wealth of fine children's books illustrated by the great Edwardian and Inter-war illustrators such as Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac and Kay Nielsen, our selection of rare children's books guarantees something for everyone.

Rare Children's Books as Gifts

For those looking to buy a rare book as a gift, it is hard to think of another type of book that appeals as much as a children's classic. The nostalgia for a favourite book or character from childhood, whether it be A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh, Dr Seuss's Cat in the Hat or Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, combined with an admiration for the author or illustrator's art, ensures if chosen correctly a delighted recipient! Consult with our resident specialists Angus Robb or Roddy Newlands for more information.
