Copyright 1922 by Doubleday, Page & Company; no other dates, indications. Large 8" x 10 1/4" design. Deep sky blue boards, gilt impressed cover and spine titles, design, moderate shelf wear, bow.

Frontispiece color plate by Arthur Rackham with three additional whimsical color plates throughout. Additionally, decorated in b & w imagery throughout. Bind good; hinges intact. Small owner's plate at front endp: Mrs. Stanley A. Hunter, 2901 Benvenue Ave., Berkeley, Calif." Antiquarian bookstore label w/three armed spiral symbol at back endp: "Paul Elder & Co. San Francisco". Illustrated monochromatic endps. depicting canine-like human characters on horseback w/winged dog-heads overhead. Near very good rarity. A charming tale for young and old warmly illustrated the iconic Arthur Rackham. As a child, the fable and imagery are exciting and enchanting and for those of age more truths may be discovered. Morley's essential message is do not be afraid to seek out your dreams and do not be surprised if what you desire can be found right where you are. "Each in turn may call this a fairy story, a dog story, an allegory or a satire, but all will be moved by the beauty and the meaning - that seems to live within the realm of those books that go on and on making friends and spreading enchantment. Gissing, its hero, is a dog who searches the world for an ideal, and then finds in the smoke of his own furnace fire a hint of the heavenly blue that he had been seeking." "Morley admirably creates a canine world through names alone. There are Mike Terrier, the curate Mr. J. Rover Poodle, the upper-class and working-class neighbors Mrs. Airedale and Mrs. Collie, the nursemaid Mrs. Spaniel and little Shaggy, her puppy, Gissing s adopted puppies Groups, Bunks, and Yelpers, haughty Mr. and Mrs. Chow and their "intolerably spotless" little Sandy, the landlady Mrs. Purps, the salesclerk Miss Whippet, the matronly Mrs. Mastiff, the compulsive shopper Mrs. Dachshund, the parishioners Mr. Dobermann-Pinscher, Mrs. Griffon, and Mrs. Retriever. There are the place names like Dalmatian Heights and the little shrine of St. Spitz. These are intermixed with humanless real locales like Paris and Atlantic City, Murray Hill and Fifth Avenue and Broadway and Wall Street, Delmonico s Restaurant and Trinity Church, and real historical personages like the Grimm brothers, Hans Christian Andersen, and Masefield; to make this our real world only inhabited by dogs, rather than some imaginary planet of dogs." - Fred Patten. Christopher Morley was an American journalist, novelist, essayist and poet. Born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania and graduated in 1910 as valedictorian. He then went to New College, Oxford University for three years on a Rhodes Scholarship. He was one of the founders and a long-time contributing editor of the Saturday Review of Literature. A highly gregarious man, he was the mainstay of what he dubbed the "Three Hours for Lunch Club". 227 pages. Insured post. Size: 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. Seller Inventory # 019605

About this Item: New York and London Doubleday, Page & Co. and William Heinemann 1922, 1922. First edition, American issue. With 4 color plates and 16 line drawings by Arthur Rackham. 4to, blue cloth lettered and decorated in gilt. x, 227. A very clean, well preserved and handsome copy, the spine gilt just a touch mellowed. SCARCE FIRST EDITION. A wonderfully imaginative tale out of Christopher Morley s oeuvre. Rackham s colour illustrations are quite unusual and marry perfectly to this splendid story. A highly unusual story in which Mr. Gissing, a gentledog of leisure contentedly residing in Canine Estates with Fuji, his butler (a Japanese pug), on an income of 1,000 bones a year, becomes dissatisfied and leaves home to search for where the blue begins (a purpose to life). "Morley admirably creates a canine world through names alone. There are Mike Terrier, the curate Mr. J. Rover Poodle, the upper-class and working-class neighbors Mrs. Airedale and Mrs. Collie, the nursemaid Mrs. Spaniel and little Shaggy, her puppy, Gissing s adopted puppies Groups, Bunks, and Yelpers, haughty Mr. and Mrs. Chow and their "intolerably spotless" little Sandy, the landlady Mrs. Purps, the salesclerk Miss Whippet, the matronly Mrs. Mastiff, the compulsive shopper Mrs. Dachshund, the parishioners Mr. Dobermann-Pinscher, Mrs. Griffon, and Mrs. Retriever.
