Books of Wonder is one of the nation's leading dealers in old, rare, out-of-print, and collectible children's books. Our extensive collection of old, rare and first edition titles - many signed by the author or illustrator - are all available for purchase. What sort of books will you find here? Why, anything children have loved and adults still cherish. Prices range from ten dollars to several hundred dollars with some even in the thousands! Many people find a special joy in giving gifts from their own childhood. Antique books also make memorable holiday and birthday gifts as well as gifts for a baby's christening and other special occasions.

For those new to collecting rare books, we have created a guide to how we describe our books and many of the bibliographic terms used in these descriptions.To view this guide and glossary on our website, click below:
