£300.00

Product description

Scarce limited edition book, number 184 of 310 copies, signed by the author below the copy number. Original cream vellum covers with gilt titles on the front and spine; the covers are superficially grubby from handling over the years and on the back near the edge are a small watermark and a patch of reddish spotting. Gilt top edge and untrimmed fore and lower edges which are tanning at the tips. Gift inscription on front pastedown dated 1939, no printed date so this is taken to be year of publication. Occasional light foxing in the text. Very light tanning on the top and right hand margins of the plates which does not affect the pictures. All plates have tissue guards. back hinge cracked at the final endpaper otherwise binding is tight. Not a collection of lovely ladies but a collection of even lovelier dogs! 20 superb full-page lightly tinted sketches on heavy glossy paper depicting models the artists has known, in various doggy poses.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
