About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Long Tails and Short by Taber, Gladys.

Description:

First Edition stated on the copyright page. This is an early and very scarce Taber title, and I wish it were in better condition--but one has to play the hand one is dealt. It is the original pictorial cloth binding (three Cocker Spaniels on front cover). The binding is age-dulled and shows moderate wear along the edges of the boards. Both the front and rear hinges have been re-glued sometime in the past: they both work fine but are a bit stiff. There is a blind embossed name stamp on the front flyleaf and also on the half title. No dust jacket. There is good news: the pages are tight and clean with no marks. Bookseller Inventory # MP13-3179C
