National Library Week: Ronald Searle Again

For the second year in a row, I've had more than one post about Ronald Searle during National Library Week. Go figure. Now that we know each other, I'm going to presume there's no need to explain myself here.

If there's one thing I like better than a Searle cat, it's a literary Searle cat with a book collection. Happy reading and happy National Library Week!


Ronald Searle, Slightly Foxed--But Still Desirable, London: Souvenir Press Ltd., 1989,
Limited Edition 10/150 with an original cat cartoon

Sold Prior to June 7, 2012


Ronald Searle, Tail-edge shaved,
Slightly Foxed--But Still Desirable, London: Souvenir Press Ltd., 1989, Page 35



Ronald Searle, Totally illiterate cat discovering the advantage of literature.
Postcard for the Stephen Green Press, 1975, promoting More Cats





Note:  Somewhere out there are nine other copies of the limited edition of Slightly Foxed--But Still Desirable which contain original Searle drawings. Please be a dear and check your rare book collection to see if you possess one of them. I would love to add scans or photos of the original cat cartoons from copies 1/150 through 9/150. Nothing overly ambitious on my part....
