The Cats' Party, The Donkeys' Party, and The Dogs' Party. Three laughable tales, with humorous coloured engravings.
Dean & Son,
[iv], 22, 18, 18: done in rhyme, with all 24 hand-coloured illustrations present (one double-page) (and including the general frontis, which duplicates that of the Dog's Party), plus the engraved title page. Original yellow advertisement endpapers. Pages in good order, though with quite a lot of soiling, and one page has staining from former sellotape where a 6cm closed tear has now been made good. In the original binding of brown cloth, 177x137mm, boards decorated in blind and front titled in gilt, with a new brown cloth spine: clean and firm, gilt clear but rubbed. Very nice copy.
