Antique Book, Bowser the Hound, Thornton W. Burgess, 1920 Green Meadow Series, Dog Story. Published by Grosset & Dunlap, New York, 1920. Hardcover. A story about a protective and loving dog. It is a hardback blue papered covered book with dark blue ink stamped titles. Illustrated by Harrison Cady. A wonderful book to read to children. Burgess was a master at writing children's books and was also a dedicated naturalist. He wrote more than 100 books and thousands of short-stories during his lifetime. This book is in good condition for one so old. The spine is slightly faded, the corners are bumped a bit and the edges are slightly worn. All pages are clean (albeit yellowed) and intact with no markings or stains. There is a small owner's signature on the front overleaf. Terrific for adding a touch of blue for decorating or it would make a wonderful and thoughtful gift for a Grandmother to read to their Grandchild. Children also love this story.
As a fanatical dog lover the dedication is one that I think of often *see last photo collage
