Book Description J. Mulvy Ouseley & Son / Ye Olde Royaltie Booke Publishers, London, 1913. Leather. Book Condition: Fine. Oldfield, Zoffany (illustrator). 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Written in the form of comic/satirical verse, a collection of 23 "essays" remarking upon hypocrisy seen in England of the day - many, if not most or all, of which can still be seen in most lands today. Of special note to us, as pet-owners, was an accusation brought in a court of law by a dog arguing against vivisection, with a dog being told by the judge "Most faithful of beasts you to man are I know, No protection for you can I find. Some things that we punish seem nothing at all Compared to the fate that "man's friend" must befall". Another moving essay, titled "Red Rubber", deals with the atrocities committed in the Belgian Congo against children by the then-king of Belgium, Leopold II, who personally owned the Congo Free State. Extremely thought-provoking, perhaps especially because of the satiric verses used by the author (of whom we were unable to find a verifiable source listing his full name), and somewhat uncommon; we were only able to find 7 copies listed in WorldCat/OCLC. ***THE ILLUSTRATIONS: Accompanying each essay are several illustrations by Zoffany Oldfield (there are 46 total in the book); after searching we found other titles he had illustration during this same time period, but were unable to find biographical information. The drawings are illustrative rather than moving, but do bring to life the points the author is making. ***DESCRIPTION: Red leather binding with the title in large script, in gilt, on the front, narrow double-ruled border on the front, spine has raised bands, gilt rules and decorations, inner gilt dentelles, top edge gilt, other edges uncut, marbled endpapers, 46 full-page black and white illustrations interspersed throughout the text; pagination: (1)-150. ***CONDITION: Fine, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings. Several gatherings are unopened, and we have confirmed that all illustrations are present as called for. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.
