Nomination Deadline: October 15, 2012
For more details visit the Bibliographic Society of America’s website.

October 15, 2012 is the deadline for nominating published monographs, essays, theses, dissertations, or electronic publications published, approved or posted between 1 January 2010 and 1 October 2012 for the 2012 Justin G. Schiller Prize for Bibliographic Work on Pre-20th-Century Children’s Books, sponsored by the
Bibliographical Society of America.

Submissions may concentrate on any children’s books printed before the year 1901 in any country or any language. They should involve research into bibliography and printing history broadly conceived and should focus on the physical book as historical evidence for studying topics such as the history of book production, publication, distribution, collecting, or reading. Studies of the printing, publishing, and allied trades, as these relate to children’s books, are also welcome.

For complete information on the application process, including the submission requirements, visit the homepage of the Bibliographic Society of America.

In 2010, the prize was awarded to Jill Shefrin’s “The Dartons: Publishers of Educational Aids, Pastimes and Juvenile Ephemera, 1787-1876” (Los Angeles: Cotsen Occasional Press, 2009).
