Description:

A Very Scarce Early Louis Wain with Four Marvelous Full-Color PlatesWAIN, Louis. Animal Frolics. London: John F. Shaw & Co. Ltd., [1910]. First edition. Small quarto (9 7/16 x 7 1/16 inches; 239 x 180 mm.). [32] pp. Four wonderful color plates mounted onto gray card. Numerous black and white drawings including eight full-page. Original gray cloth spine, decorated gray card wrappers with a copy of the color frontispiece mounted on the front cover. Small light stain to lower edge of rear board, just touching margin of last text leaf, otherwise a remarkable and near fine copy of this very scarce Louis Wain title.An unusual Louis Wain book with four color plates of Cats and Dogs and many black and white drawings of Bears, Lions, A Duck, An Elephant and a 'fishy' Hippo! We have never seen this title before.At the end of the nineteenth century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. "He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves" (H.G. Wells)."From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled?although he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!" (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).Rodney Dale only records the later Collins edition of 1919. Bookseller Inventory #
