Thy servant dog and other dog stories

£4.99

Product description

Thy servant dog and other dog stories by Rudyard Kipling. Published by Macmillan 1960. Hardback. No dust jacket. Boards are slightly bumped. Some foxing to page edges. Name and date on fly leaf.

First published in the United States of America in Liberty of 7 June 1930 illustrated by Herbert M Stoops (1888-1948) and in the United Kingdom in Cassell’s Magazine of August the same year, illustrated by G. L. Stampa (George Loraine Stampa, 1875-1951), well known as an artist for Punch. he story is told by Boots, a black Aberdeen terrier very similar to those owned by Kipling over the years which obviously inspired his verse "The Power of the Dog". Boots lives in London with his master. While walking in the park they meet another Aberdeen named Slippers, owned by a young woman, (Polly). The dogs fight, the owners separate them with mutual apologies and all walk off together. The dogs become friends, the man and woman marry and live in a house on a country estate with, like the well-to-do upper and middle classes of the time, a staff of servants. There are houses of varying size on the estate, some occupied by members of the family, with other cottages and lodges for members of staff.
