Faces. Profiles of Dogs

London: Harvill Press, 1961. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's dark chocolate cloth, spine and upper board gilt, split pea endpapers, original photo-illustrated dust jacket.

"When one loves dogs, it is difficult not to attribute human qualities to them." British novelist, poet, and dog lover Vita Sackville-West and Russian-born photographer Laelia Goehr’s "waggish" gathering of canine studies. The collection pairs tragicomic meditations on 44 diverse breeds (Sackville-West describes the labrador as a "dear, solid, faithful lump of a dog," while the Corgi is a "docile minion") with striking and equally humorous full-page black-and-white portraits by Goehr. Corners and spine-ends gently bumped, unclipped dust jacket with light edgewear. Near fine. Item #5669
