2 Catalogue Of The Cotsen Children's Library: The Twentieth Century (vols 1 & 2).
Cotsen Children's Library, Princeton: 2000-2003. h Hardcover as issued without dustjackets. Brand new books. Two-volume set. 
In fall 1996, the Cotsen staff began compiling a multi-volume book catalogue of the research collection, with support from the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections and the Technical Services Department of the Princeton University Library. When complete, this catalogue will describe that portion of the non-circulating collection of printed books which the donor Lloyd E. Cotsen has gifted to Princeton University up to the year 2000. The material will comprise approximately 23,000 items out of a total of over 60,000 in over thirty languages published during the fifteenth through twentieth centuries. Two volumes of the catalogue have been completed thus far. In May 2000, volume I, the twentieth century A-L, was published, and in December 2003, volume II, the twentieth century M-Z. 12,403 books are described there, with detailed notes on their illustrations, contents, bindings, and previous owners. As so many children's books appear without dates of publication on their title pages, every attempt has been made to assign an accurate date of issue based on internal evidence and authoritative reference sources in print and on-line. Designed by Mark Argetsinger, the text of each volume is lavishly illustrated with over one hundred and fifty illustrations in duotone and process color and printed on Mohawk Superfine paper. The volumes are bound in olive green Japanese cloth with the front covers stamped in gold and full-color patterned endpapers. 9.4 x 12.6 inches, cloth, with gilt-stamped decoration on upper covers, title labels on spines

20 ALDERSON, BRIAN & OYENS, FELIX DE MAREZ . Be Merry And Wise: Origins Of Children's Book Publishing In England, 1650-1850.
Oak Knoll Press, New Castle / Co-published with The Pierpont Morgan Library, New York, The Bibliographical Society of America and The British Library, London: 2006. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
When was it that someone decided that books might be written and published for child readers? It's fair to say that some kinds of text-alphabets, fables, the Lord's Prayer, may have been seen as fundamental to the process of learning to read from the beginning of book making, but when did children come to be seen as a readership for whom special provision should be made? The child as the audience for books in the English language is the subject of this bibliographical study, which had its origins in an exhibition held at the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York. From this beginning, Felix de Marez Oyens and Brian Alderson have compiled Be Merry and Wise and shown how certain creative talents, driven by a sense of purpose, or a wish to make some money, attempted to appeal directly to children, and how the publishing industry came to realize that this audience might prove to constitute a profitable market. In conducting their survey, which is centered upon the books themselves, mostly drawn from the holdings of the Morgan Library, the authors not only plot the chronological development of children's book publishing from almost random beginnings to the diversity of the early Victorian period, they also show how publishers adapted their trade methods to exploit this new market. Sweetness and light did not prevail everywhere, but, even in some of the most forbidding examples presented here, there was a commercial optimism that both merriment and wisdom might be happily combined, within the pages of children's literature.
