The Great Small Cat and Others

by david on 15 December 2010

A decade after publishing her popular “101” cookbook series, May Southworth wrote this book of seven tales for cat lovers. Handsomely bound if unimaginatively typeset, the book is illustrated with eight sepia photographs. From an Arts & Crafts perspective, the book is notable chiefly for the decorations by artist Pedro J. Lemos (1882-1954), who in 1914 was just becoming well-known for his wood-block prints.

I dedicate this post to the memory of Fuller the Cat, who gave us six years of companionship and affection.

Here is short eulogy for Fuller on my blog. And here is a longer piece about Fuller that I wrote for the Kaddish Project.
