21706 Baby's Own Primer, with choice pictures.

Baby's Own Primer, with choice pictures.

An interesting, uncommon alphabet book and reader in bad condition, the fine coated linen allowing good printings of the nicely chosen house illustrations, and oversized syllabified print in the stories. Many dogs, hounds, a very large dog with his eyes on his mistress's cake, and a little terrier.

For Newfoundland dog lovers: "Wasn't it nice that lit-tle Bert had such a friend when he fell in-to the wa-ter? A big, shag-gy friend with long sil-ky ears, a black nose, and a great mouth ... Bru-no sprang right in too, and got him and laid him on the ground, and ran to the house af-ter Bert's folks", probably a true story!

Dog Toby by Himself.

An autobiography in poetic form of a very curious dog, with a different Chapter on every page following him through his happy life. All pages are illustrated with large drawings in red, blue, yellow, green, and brown in a quality similar to a hardcover book, rather than a cloth book. Toby seems to be a smooth fox terrier, and in one of his adventures, wins first prize in a dogs show. Not a common book, we just happen to have two at once. Ask for pictures of this one.

a day, a dog

A wordless book for children and adults in quick charcoal sketches. A black and white hound is thrown out of a moving car... the book follows his day, from cruelty to chaos to the possibility of love. "Astonishing drawings! Fierce, fleeting images that manage, despite their intense breathlessness, to meticulously tell a tail full of power and honesty. An entirely unique work of art." Maurice Sendak.
