According to the dictionary, a potpourri is "a mixture of things, particularly a musical or literary medley" and that's exactly what you'll discover in the current Wonderland100. A little bit of this and a little bit of that (minus the music): pop-ups and movables, Newbery and Caldecott award-winners, novels for children and young adults, Little Golden Books, and picture books ranging from the mid-19th century through modern times. Each has been hand-selected as a fine example of its kind, in collectible condition, and almost always a true first edition.
Welcome to the 6th edition of 100 Wonderful Books from Wonderland, an online catalog appearing several times annually offering a select variety of top-of-the-line items. With few exceptions, we offer only first editions (by which we mean first edition, first printings) in original dust jackets (if thus issued).
You can easily use a Search function to the bottom of each page. In addition to the Categories tab above, you can now search by title, author, illustrator, or key word. Simply type your request in the Search field and a list will automatically scroll below.
