Introduction

Welcome to this illustrated bibliography of all of the books in Nelson Doubleday’s “Best in Children’s Books” series. If you’re a collector of these lovely little books, I hope it will help you to build or complete your collection! Or if you’re just interested in learning more about the series, the complete list of titles below contains information about the contents of each book (including authors and illustrators), as well as covers both with and without the dust jackets.

These books are often collected in conjunction with the Junior Deluxe Editions, which are similar in size and binding, so please feel free to visit the JDE page if you’re interested in these as well.

‘Best in Children’s Books’ – A Bit of Background

The ‘Best in Children’s Books’ series was released through the Doubleday Book Clubs from 1957 to the late 1960s. In total, there were 42 volumes published. The number of each volume is not indicated on the external binding, but can be found only via a very small number on the bottom right of the title page or on the back flap of the dust jacket if you have one (you can see in the image to the right that the title page of this volume is marked with a tiny ’15’.) A couple of volumes were reprinted with slightly different contents, and these are typically designated by the addition of a lower case “a” following the volume number (i.e. 10a and 19a). Other reprints have the same contents and images, but a different coloured spine which often correlates to the colour of the duotone images inside the volumes. However, at least one volume appears to have been reprinted (Volume 18, which changed the country visit story) without any obvious indication other than the table of contents.

Each book was issued with a full colour dust jacket, but the volumes are much more commonly found without the dust jacket. Each volume has a different collection of images on the spine, drawn from from some of the main stories in the volumes, to enable children to quickly select their favourite story from the shelf without having to scan the contents of the book. Each volume contained a mix of classics, non-fiction, and also new stories. Classics might include adaptations of familiar tales like Robinson Crusoe or Gulliver’s Travels; new stories were written about familiar folk and fairy tales, or retellings of mythology such as Pandora or Pegasus; biographical stories about famous figures such as Abraham Lincoln or Napoleon were included to inspire an interest in history; and each volume contained an informational piece on a different country accompanied by photographs.

Most of the books in this series are priced cheaply, because many people mistakenly think of them as inferior ‘book club editions’. However, this is not the case, since despite being released via a book club, they are not reprints of previous volumes. Probably the biggest attraction of this series are the contributing illustrators that were part of Doubleday’s freelance stable during this period. Because they are not listed in the table of contents, only on the story itself, for a long time these works were not included in their bibliographies, so they can be attractive to completion-ist collectors. Many of these illustrators went on to distinguished careers in children’s illustration, such as Barbara Cooney, Maurice Sendak, Ezra Jack Keats, Richard Scarry and Feodor Rojankovsky. For other artists, such as Andy Warhol, this is a rare opportunity to see their talents turned in this direction. If you are looking to sell, first printings are valued more highly than later editions and nice quality dust jackets will add value to a book. If you’re looking to start a collection, many people sell them in bulk lots, and building your collection this way can be quick and cheap, and the books look darling in any combination. (Also, since there are no numbers on the spine, no-one looks to see if they are ‘in order’, or can tell if you are ‘missing’ volumes from a set.)

You can sort the list below by number, year, etc, and each volume includes the complete contents so you can search for specific names or story titles. If you would rather sort by individual story title, author or illustrator, then please visit the page listing the contents of each BICB book. Happy reading!
