Description:
Pinner: Private Library Association, 1981. cloth. Lumsden & Son. tall 8vo. cloth. xxv, 134 pages. First edition. Little information regarding the firm of James Lumsden and Son has survived. It seems they first became interested in publishing books for children around the end of the eighteenth century. Although the firm attracted little notice in their own age, their juvenile books have now become collector's pieces. Lumsden books show a distinctive quality: it is not easy to define and does not hold in all cases, but these books are easily recognizable to the experienced eye. It is a certain trimness (primness one might almost call it) in the covers, the quality of the paper used, the excellent typeface and the occasional use of colored inks. This important reference book contains 172 lengthy bibliographical descriptions of these fascinating books. There is also an historical introduction which describes the type of books published by this intriguing firm. Covers faded.
