This MASTERPIECE is an incomparable collaboration between author Marguerite Henry and artist/illustrator Wesley Dennis.

Collector's 1970 first printing new edition hardcover book - An Album of Dogs by Marguerite Henry. Stunning lithograph illustrations by Wesley Dennis.

Publisher: Rand McNally, Copyright, 1970, first printing of a newly revised edition of original 1955 book "Wagging the Tails". No isbn. Not ex-library.

Henry provides fascinating historical facts and true anecdotes about 25 pure bred dogs plus the "mongrel". Fun reading for children and adults. You learn why Dachshunds have short legs and long body, how the Cocker spaniel got his name, how German shepherd became beloved friend of the blind...

MAGNIFICENT illustrations, each breed has vibrant full page color lithograph; a work of art. Numerous charming smaller, text black & white drawings. Every dog is captured brilliantly, showing its lively personality; the pages come to life. Per Ms. Henry: "This artist saw beyond hide and hair and bone..." Delightful brown monochrome illustrated endpapers. Photos do not fully capture exquisite color hues; wait until you see pictures up close. WOW!
