Lords of the Housetops: Thirteen Illustrated Cat Tales  As Carl Van Vechten notes in his preface to this collection, “In the essay and especially in poetry the cat has become a favourite subject, but in fiction it must be admitted that he lags considerably behind the dog.” Van Vechten sought to mitigate this disparity by creating this collection of charming (and sometimes frightening) feline tales.

Lords of the Housetops: Thirteen Illustrated Cat Tales

François Élie Jules Lemaître always loved children. His own beloved daughter, Madeleine, died when she was only a month old, and he never had any more children. But he had many godchildren, and he loved to tell them stories. The collection of short, alphabet-themed stories in this volume was born from this love of children and storytelling.
