FOLIO SOCIETY TO PUBLISH TOILERS OF THE SEA

I am delighted to be able to announce, that such has been the response to our campaign to persuade the Folio Society to publish a definitive edition of The Toilers of the Sea, that they have decided to go ahead and the book is now in production.

The Toilers of the Sea has never been published with Victor Hugo’s original artwork. The 36 images he bound into his original manuscript are absolutely stunning and help bring a whole new perspective to this the greatest of all Channel Island novels.

THE LITTLE RIVER - DOUBLE WINNER AT FINE PRESS FAIR

The popularity of Margaret Wise Brown’s classic, Good Night Moon" endures in America today, over 60 years after her death, such that you can chart birth rates by the sales of that book. She composed The Little River in 1950 and it has never been published before. Margaret gave the manuscript to her fiance, the father of publisher Liv Rockefeller. The book comes complete with a facsimile of the original manuscript and essays by Michael Kuch describing his printing techniques and Liv Rockefeller who describes the role Margaret played in her life as well as the alternative endings to the manuscript. There are only 60 copies of this absolutely beautiful book and there aren’t many left.
