By Yvonne Skargon. London: Primrose Hill Press, 1998. Captivating, charming engravings of the now famous cats (Oscar, Lily & Hodge) by this internationally renowned British artist with an enchanting talent for creating memorable images of plants and animals (especially cats). Words by Samuel Johnson. Oscar cat, appearing in The Importance of  Being Oscar (also available in this catalog), was succeeded by two kittens--Lily and Hodge. This book portrays with wit and affection the personalities, antics and attitudes of these two felines, behavior immediately recognized by humankind whose lives are immoderately governed by that “domestic animal that catches mice.” Dr. Johnson includes himself among those devotees of the feline race—“which add gravity to a record which otherwise illustrates a more insouciant attitude to life.” Also available in this catalog as part of a limited edition signed by the artist with original engravings from the block. 198 x 129 mm, 64 pp. Paperback.
