Description:

N.d., circa 1890s. Oblong, 11.5 by 15 cm. 12 pp., including wraps. A cute, humorous poem about a brilliant circus dog whose secret of success was big surprise, Clarke's buffalo dog biscuits. The charming promotion is of interest for a few reasons other than its sweet narrative verse: the packaging and marketing of dog food was a relatively recent innovation, and most dogs were then still fed scraps and what foods their master might prepare for them; and the use of buffalo meat, which would surprise modern consumers for among other reasons, buffalo now being considered a premium meat. W. G. Clarke & Sons was established in 1851 as a purveyor of feed for game and poultry as well as dog food. It is unknown how long it continued in business. Scarce, with no copies located on either OCLC FirstSearch or COPAC. The dating is based on the legend, "By Special Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen", which means this was issued before 1901. Rusty staples binding the booklet, with center leaf loose. The rear cover has remnants of paper that was once pasted on to it, and some minor abrasions from the removal of such paper. The pictorial image, though, is overall intact. Bookseller Inventory #
