A Literary Anthology
Published by British Library
Are you a cat person or a dog person? Well, here’s your chance to pick your side—and let your home library show it. Historically, cats, those lovers of laps have been more closely associated with books and the bookish, but dogs have left their pawprints all over the history of literature, too. This pair of volumes honors both of humanity’s favorite animals, celebrating their long-standing connections with that other great companion: the book.
Interspersing beautifully reproduced, often amusing illustrations with selections from famous works by a wide range of authors—including Shakespeare, Dickens, Kipling, Poe, Twain, D. H. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, Beatrix Potter, William Blake, Lord Byron, the Brothers Grimm, and many, many more—these two books are guaranteed to entertain, amuse, and enlighten any fan of our four-footed friends. Mixing familiar pieces with plenty of lesser-known discoveries, Cats and Dogs will be a perennial favorite, a perfect, perfectly charming gift.
