Why We Love This

The Fireside Sphinx by Agnes Repplier. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1901. 305 pages, 22 charming black and white chapter headings and endings illustrations of cats by E. Bonsall. First owner's Christmas 1901 inscription on the front endpaper. A very good copy in slightly rubbed and spine-mottled blue cloth stamped gilt, top edge gilt, with the great cat heraldic motto "libertas sine labore" or "liberty without work." One of the great cat books.

About Barbara Farnsworth

My bookstore, an old wooden building at the edge of a New England trout stream, houses thousands of used, rare and antiquarian books, with particular emphasis on Home and Garden subjects -- food and drink, gardening, interior design and architecture. I also carry titles on fashion, children's books and literature. Books really do furnish a room, beautifully!
