Collecting Children's Books by Richard Overell

Richard Overell returns to the Athenaeum for another talk as part of Rare Book Week

Children's books form one of the most varied and charming fields of collecting. This talk will deal with books from the early 19th century to the present. Images will be shown of both English and Australian publications by well-known authors and artists as well as those less common but no less attractive. In addition Richard will show board games, and albums of swap cards, comics and annuals.
