Very Special Holiday Gifts

We all know people on our list who have 'everything.'  While they usually appreciate receiving a gift from us, each year we wonder whether we could have found something that would take them out of the realm of a polite "thank you" and into the realm of "I can't believe it!"  These are two of those kinds of gifts!

Bran Mak Morn, The Last King, was written by Robert E. Howard. A fictional hero of the Picts created by Howard, Bran Mak Morn was immortalized in pulp fiction of Howard's day. This copy is No. 294 of a Limited Edition of 850. It appears to never have been read. The Dust Jacket is excellent and the slipcase shows virtually no wear. You can purchase it at our Amazon1 site for $540.

Another beautiful book from the past illustrates the life of famed illustrator, Tasha Tudor. Written by Tudor's daughter, Bethany, this portrait shows the setting and the process of Tasha Tudor's ability to draw on her imagination and the countryside around her to create the stunning works she did. It is no wonder she was a two time Caldecott Medal winner and that her works are collected around the world. You can have this 1981 copy of Drawn From New England by visiting our Amazon1 website. It appears never to have been read. The dust jacket is in mylar and is fine. We have it listed for $80.
