by G. Grant Mason Jr. (Introduction by William B. Kip)
New Haven, CT: The Tuttle, Morehouse & Taylor Company, 1926. Boards. Very Good +. G. Grant Mason Jr.. A wonderful Presentation copy of this cartoon study of the Yale bulldog and all the trouble he gets into. WARMLY INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR GRANT MASON TO HIS PARENTS ("THEY MADE THIS CANINE CREATOR WHAT HE IS TO-DAY---(WE HOPE THEY'RE SATISFIED)"). ALSO INSCRIBED BY WILLIAM B. KIP at the foot of his 1 pg. Introduction. A tight, very sharp copy to boot of the 1926 1st edition. Clean and VG+ to Near Fine in its charming pictorial boards, with very light soiling along the rear panel and light, innocuous creasing along several of the page edges. Tall, thin quarto, Mason's highly-skilled black-and-white illustrations thruout. And finally, this copy includes a laid-in, 1 pg. handwriiten flyer from the period announcing the arrival of "Bingo's Book" and giving it a good plug.
