The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

We don't know exactly how many Hampster Early Readers exist—though we know they were numbered to at least 43 (After Tea Tales)—or when these books were published (guessing mid-1950s), but this British series includes titles like Alice in Wonderland, Black Beauty, Heidi, King Arthur, Tortoise and the Hare, and Treasure Island

This version of Robin Hood does not cite an author or illustrator, but it has a different take on the stories than many children's versions, featuring Guy of Gisborne more strongly than the Sheriff of Nottingham and Sir Roger of Evil Hold even over Prince John's rebellion. The illustrations are juvenile, but I like them!
