Gumuchian's catalogue was a landmark in its day, and still a standard few have equaled, much less surpassed... it presented over 6000 listings for Children's books, ranging from the 15th through the 19th Centuries. The work is characterized by many annotations & notes, as well as copious illustrations (the large bulk of Volume II). A very useful reference.
