    Since it was first established in 1938, the Caldecott Medal has been awarded annually to one book out of a carefully curated selection. The Caldecott-winning illustrators and the illustrations they so lovingly craft are representative of the best and most innovative works produced for children's books that year. These books are desirable for both parents and collectors alike, but also serve as a benchmark of quality, pushing the industry forward to greater heights each year. Continuing our Caldecott Winning Illustrators Series, today we look closer at Gail E. Haley, who both wrote and illustrated 1971's medal winner, A Story A Story. Read More

    The $25 Book

    Mon, 11 Jan 2021 09:02:53 Permalink
    When I began my bookselling career as a maritime specialist, I made my living peddling $25 books. There were thousands of them – histories by people like Lubbock, Chatterton or Morison; autobiographies and adventures by Villiers or Newby; technical studies by Chapelle, Herreshoff, or MacGregor; sea yarns by Kent, O’Brian, and Forester; reprints of literary classics by Melville or the incomparable Slocum. There seemed to be an endless demand for them among ship modelers, amateur historians, and armchair sailors.Continue reading The $25 Book at Ten Pound Island Book Company. Read More

    How a Dickensian Christmas Can Boost the Spirits of Those of Us Living in 2020

We would not be surprised if you mentioned soot-covered children working in factories, or angry adults beating each other down with vicious words and persnickety actions. Then again… what comes to mind if we say “Dickensian Christmas”? I’ll bet an entirely different view comes to […] Read More

Old Saratoga Books was signed up as an exhibitor at the Vermont Antiquarian Booksellers Association Spring Fair on Saturday, April 8th at the Burlington Hilton and Barb was interested in doing some family history research at the University of Vermont Library's Special Collections, so we made it an extended weekend.We started our journey Read More

    Four Book Fairs in Five Weeks - 14 March 2017

    Tue, 14 Mar 2017 08:31:33 Permalink
    It’s been a busy month, but we’ve now returned from New York, and things should be back to normal by the end of the week.This year we decided to do both California book fairs and follow those up with the two New York satellite-shadow shows.  Gail and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results; we sold well into the low five figures at each of the first three book fairs and did very well in the fourth. For the first time in a long time, customers--to include average collectors--weren’t timid when it came to buying.  What did they buy?  Well, Read More
