by [Incline Press] Blamires, David; Illustrated by Chris Daunt
Oldham, England: Incline Press, 2015. Hardcover. Fine. Hardcover. Number 15 of 200 copies in the standard edition, signed by the printer Graham Moss. There are an additional 40 copies in the deluxe edition. David Blamires's charming monograph is concerned with the naming of cats in poetry and in prose, from the 9th-century Pangur Ban to Patricia Highsmith's'Ming, from the Tybert of Caxton's History of Renart the Fox to Paul Gallico's Jenny, whence we take the title of our book. Not to forget, of course, Puss in Boots! There are seven wood engravings by Chris Daunt inspired by the text. Each engraving shows a different breed of cat. The standard edition is case-bound in an original 1946 Curwen blue, red, and white patterned paper over boards designed by Elizabeth Friedlander with a blue cloth spine. Printed on archival quality Zerkall paper in Bell type with Bold Madonna for display. 8 x 11 inches. In fine condition. 48 pages.
