Intended to encourage scholarship in the bibliography of historical children’s books. Submissions for the Schiller Prize may concentrate on any children’s book printed before the year 1901 in any country or any language, but must be written in English. They should be based on investigations into bibliography and printing history broadly conceived and should focus on the physical aspects of the 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 picture trades, as these relate to children’s books, are also welcome. Eligible scholarship may take the form of a book or article, as Master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation defended and approved, or research results distributed in another manner, such as on a World-Wide-Web site or a CD-Rom.
Eligible scholarship must have been published, or if a dissertation or thesis, approved during the year of the deadline or the four previous calendar years. Unpublished dissertations and theses must be accompanied by a letter from their authors’ directors attesting to their having been approved.
Application deadline is commonly in October. Visit funder website for more information.
