Floyd, Grace; Wain, Louis
Tuck, London, 1905. Rare and fabulous Wain fairy tale book, wherein 12 classic characters are depicted as cats. Known as "The Edwardian Cat Artist That Went Mad," Wain was once "the most famous cat artist on earth" (Haining). His work in conceiving an entire Catland inspired the creators of Felix the Cat and even Mickey Mouse; Haining notes that Wain also "played a major part in making the cat the most popular of all domestic pets." Included here are Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Bluebeard, Robin Hood, Sinbad, Aladdin, Robinson Crusoe, Forty Thieves, Cinderella, Babes in the Wood, Sleeping Beauty and Jack the Giant Killer. Incredible and rare. 13'' x 9.5''. Original stiff pictorial card covers. Illustrated by Wain with 12 full-page color plates and 2 line illustrations, in addition to pictorial covers. Some inconspicuous spine strengthening, small corner repair.
