AN EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS BY VICTORIAN ARTISTS IN ENGLAND / EXPOSITION DE PEINTURES ET DE DESSINS PAR DES ARTISTES ANGLAIS DE L'EPOQUE VICTORIENNE., Comfort, Charles F., foreword.  Introduction By Allen Staley.
1 Comfort, Charles F., foreword. Introduction By Allen Staley. AN EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS BY VICTORIAN ARTISTS IN ENGLAND / EXPOSITION DE PEINTURES ET DE DESSINS PAR DES ARTISTES ANGLAIS DE L'EPOQUE VICTORIENNE.
Ottawa National Gallery of Canada 1965 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good 
103 pp, small 4to (10" H). Color and b&w reproductions. Bilingual text (English/French). Exhibition catalogue. "The reign of Victoria lasted from 1837 to 1901. The present exhibition attempts to give a balanced representation of the entire period. Howerever, a period of over sixty years in the rapidly changing world of the nineteenth century could hardly show anything approaching uniformity of style. Even the most cursory view of this exhibition should demonstrate that no one set of generalities is adequate to describe the variety of works created during the era, all of them 'Victorian'." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light browning to edges of covers, minor edge wear, spine flat and uncreased.

A-Z OF STAFFORDSHIRE DOGS: A POTTED HISTORY, Pope, Clive Mason
3 Pope, Clive Mason A-Z OF STAFFORDSHIRE DOGS: A POTTED HISTORY
Woodbridge, Suffolk Antique Collectors' Club 1999 1851492585 / 9781851492589 Reprint Hard Cover Fine Very Good 
168 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). Colour photographs. "In the 18th century, artists and potters were not slow to reflect in models the interest of the time in identifying and selectively breeding individual types of dog, and continental and home-based factories started to produce realistic examples of both sporting and pampered dogs. Following Landseer's painting of 1836 of Queen Victoria's favourite dog, the King Charles Spaniel Dash, the potters of Staffordshire were not slow to seize the opportunity to turn Dash into a national icon. Pairs of spaniels were portrayed in clay in enormous quantities, followed soon after by many other breeds. The modellers are usually anonymous, but the simple hand-painted decoration, often done by children, gives each piece an individuality and vitality, and as (this) charming book shows, these dogs have an enduring quality that makes them as endearing today as they were when first made." Very light rubbing, very light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and top edge of rear panel, two tiny dints on front hinge.
