About Us


We are a small reprint publishing house specializing in classic books and publications.

Currently, we offer over 37,000 items divided into several libraries: The Shellback's Library of nautical publications and The Press at Toad Hall which offers 32 Libraries of World Literature.

The books in our Timeless Reading Library are all high quality hard-cover editions with laminated dust jackets. Most books are 12mo (Duodecimo, (approximately 8 1/2" x 5 1/4"). The inside front and back covers are of a royal-red cover stock and the cover itself is a two-colour cream stock, often with full-colour artwork. The jacket is vinyl laminated for cleanliness and durability. All books have a red-ribbon bookmark and all are printed on heavy 70lb. cream-coloured text stock for reduced print-through and excellent readability.
