Green and white endpapers, four b&w illustrations by Harrison Cady, including frontispiece (collated). "There is nothing Bowser the Hound enjoys quite so much as to hunt someone who will give him a long, hard run. That is why one day he ran so far from home, while following the trail of Old Man Coyote, that he could not find his way back to Farmer Brown's. Fortunately for Bowser, Blacky the Crow was sorry for him and led him to a strange farmhouse where he was petted and fed. But Bowser was not happy. He knew all the time that he was a prisoner and missed his snug little house and his master. If crafty Blacky had not found a way of getting him back home, and if Reddy the Fox had not been so hungry for a fat hen, Bowser still might be lost." Soft crease down spine, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear, moderate small edge creases - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap folds, several very small edge tears and a few very small edge chips, some old tape on inside, small taped tear on spine, a few tiny scuffs, three creases down front panel, some light toning on flap folds, very light soiling and rubbing on rear panel, protected in a mylar sleeve.

A-Z OF STAFFORDSHIRE DOGS: A POTTED HISTORY, Pope, Clive Mason
4 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.
