can I find out what my McLoughlin book or print is worth?
We do not have expertise in appraising items and, therefore,
can only refer you to other sources.
books: Check with an out-of-print book dealer. To assist
you in locating one close to your home, see our list
of out-of-print book dealers who specialize in children's
books. You can also try www.bookfinder.com.
If there are other books with the same title and edition for
sale, you can compare the description of the book with yours.
Naturally, the condition of the book will either add to or
subtract from its market value.
prints: We suggest finding a Fine Arts dealer close to
your home to ask. If they cannot appraise your print, they
might be able to refer you to someone who can.
can I find out more information about the McLoughlin Brothers
very little has been written about the McLoughlin Brothers
Company. The only reference we are aware of is a short article
by Michael Patrick Hearn, "McLoughlin Brothers, 1928-1978,"
printed in Original Wood Blocks from the Archives of McLoughlin
Brothers, Publishers, New York (1978) by Justin Schiller.
Hearn's article was later published as McLoughlin Brothers,
1928-1978 (New York:J. G. Shiller, 1980). Much of the
information in that booklet is contained in an article
about Mr. Shiller's gift which is available online. Also
see the Finding Aid
for our McLoughlin materials.

knowledge there is no reference that documents the "run,"
or number of books printed for each McLoughlin title/edition.
Again, perhaps, a rare book dealer will have a better sense
of this given the number of books they have come across in
