Bibliographic Details

Title: Creatures Great and Small

Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, New York

Publication Date: 1951

Binding: Hardcover

Tan cloth with black lettering. Hint of edgewear. Text is clean and white, no marks. Unclipped DJ with $3.50 price shows light rubbing to edges and corners, small mark to rear cover, minor general soil. "Colette's passionate love for animals, her uncanny sympathy with cats, dogs and birds are proverbial. In writing of them she is never guilty of the mawkishness of the "Feathered Friends" school. She emulates rather the simplicity of the Greek Anthologists and presents her dog and her cat as Diana would her hound or a Bacchante her tiger. This book groups together in translation three of her books about animals: Creature Conversations, Other Creatures, and Creature Comfort." (from the jacket). Bookseller Inventory # J91111
