Aldin, Cecil Just Among Friends , London, United Kingdom: Eyre and Spottiswoode Ltd, 1934.

Illustrated by Cecil Aldin. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall FIRST EDITION Bound in the publishers original light grey cloth covers with contrasting black title lettering to spine and upper front board. All pages are present and correct with no inscriptions and are firmly bound. A Very Good copy with only light overall wear. The illustrations are printed on high quality art paper which is of a card like consistency. This is the first impression of this wonderful collection of Cecil Aldin's famous and lovingly crafted dog illustrations. There are 83 dog studies contained within produced on 27 full page plates printed on one side in both colour and monochrome. Technically brilliant, Aldin had a particular talent for sketching, drawing and painting any animal but it seems that his love for the natural portrait of the dog surpassed all. Cecil Aldin was and always will be an animal painter of the highest pedigree. A very presentable copy indeed of a much loved collection of Cecil Aldin's masterly work. (Book ref. 000987 )  £ 120.00
