What is wrong with this picture?
I can’t quite put my finger on it. But the
concept of Four-Footed Lovers seems a
bit – how can one put it? – Taranaki.
The book was written by Frank Albertsen,
illustrated by Lizbeth
Bullock Humphrey and published in 1875 by Lee & Shepard, among
whose other authors was the magnificently monikered Levina Buoncuore Urbino.
The publisher was based in Boston and the imprint survives as part of
HarperCollins. After that, you are on your own.
