Not in OCLC. ¶ We love antique children's books that are festooned with cats, so what's not to like about this vintage coloring book? Several well-known illustrators contributed to it, including Florence Notter, Lillian A. Govey, G.F. Christie, Rosa C. Petherick (1871-1931), Stuart Barker, and Mabel Lucie Attwell (1879-1964). ¶ The present edition appears earlier than Donohue's (likewise undated) "Pussy Picture Book" which depicts four cats circling a Jack-In-The-Box on the front cover. ¶ Provenance: "Ann McIntyre, Xmas 1926" / "Mary Ann McIntyre."

Price: $80.00
