Vintage Children's books - love them!!

I love old Children's books and have a growing collection.
Everything 'vintage' is getting quite pricey in Australia and its obvious people have a yearning for things of yesteryear....
I love a good bargain so here are some cute books I found recently!
Ive also started a flickr set on Vintage Images where I will be adding some cute vintage illustrations from my books that I love so much!

I found this book 'I love Dolls' in the country town Orange for only 5cents!!!

Pussy's Doll - 1957

This book, ' Escapade' by John S Goodall is only 20 years old but I love silhouette graphics
and the book has no words, only beautiful black and white images!

This image comes from a book called 'Curly Locks' and was published in 1912! Stunning

A great blog for more vintage images is Prints Charming
and I recently found this website, Childrens Books online which has an extensive library section with amazing vintage images!!

  3. Hello,

    I just discovered your blog! And saw your gorgeous swap gifts over at Jungle Dream Pagoda!

    This holiday dh and I went to a used bookstore that had tons of "Little Golden Books." I wanted to snatch them all up, but couldn't justify it to dh so I passed. Plus we were traveling and that is always a problem with luggage!

    Happy New Years!

  8. i am in love with vintage children's books!!! on of my favorite children's books is out of print but you can sometimes buy it online. whenever i find it i try to buy up a ton of copies whenever i find it on ebay (because they are often falling apart)...still your boys will probably like the story, the book is called "THE BOY WHO FOOLED THE GIANT"~by TAMARA KITT xo, Melanie
