1 [Wain, Louis and G. H. Thompson]
Comic Animals and their Adventures with Alphabets and Rhymes
No publisher, n.d. (ca 190?) 
7"x9" [16]pp including illustrated wraps. A piracy incorporating pictures from books illustrated by Wain and Thompson. Contains a comical animal alphabet, each letter with a humorous rhyme and image, with each opening in color on one side, facing text and smaller images in blue line on the other. "A is for alligator who bathed in the Nile, In a costume made up of a hat and a smile." The image on the upper cover is signed by Louis Wain, as are five of the small color alphabet images, and all color alphabet images appear to be Wain's. Includes The Animals' Trip to Sea, with three of Thompson's detailed full-page color pictures of anthropomorphic animals on board ship and at the seaside. Covers slightly stained and soiled, child's name penciled to upper cover. Light rubbing and wear along spine and at corners, long corner crease to lower cover. Very Good overall.
