[A set of original illustrations by Neave Parker for 'Chips the Alsatian'.]
[Larger images signed 'Neave Parker' to inset cartouche; one dated [19]40 by the artist. All are stamped '2 May 1940' to verso.]
Eighteen (18) pen & ink drawings on scraperboard, cut to various sizes: six c.240 x 165mm, 9½ x 6½"; the rest 195 x 160mm (7¾ x 6¼"), or smaller. Various pen and pencil annotations to margins and versos; all are captioned with their intended positions in the text, i.e. 'Chap 4 page 36'. Larger images also with relevant quotation. Most with pinholes to margins; generally a little bumping and creasing to sometimes rough-cut extremities. Altogether a fine set.
The book by Lady Kitty Edith Blanche Vincent (afterwards Ritson) was one of the 'Animals All' series of children's books. It was first published in London by T. Nelson & Sons in 1940. A unique archive of lively and engaging images following the life of a robust Alsatian puppy to adulthood; scenes of the dog at work and play, in a variety of poses and engaged in a variety of activities, indoors and outdoors. One image features a pony. The final sketch is lettered 'The End' in pen in thick ruled Gothic script. W. Neave Parker (1910 - 1961) worked as a surveyor for a short while before going on to serve in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, working in the Photographic Unit. After making the acquaintance of Maurice Burton, a scientific associate at the Natural History Museum and also honorary science editor at the Illustrated London News, he began to produce animal illustrations. The first of his drawings of prehistoric animals appeared in the Illustrated London News on 30 September 1950. He became an accomplished scientific illustrator and the National History Museum commissioned him to do a series of picture postcards; the museum retains the 19 original drawings for this series. Parker also illustrated numerous children's books. His drawings are held in the Ulster Museum and he was the subject of an exhibition there entitled, ' The Prehistoric World of Neave Parker' in 1993.

[American?, n.d., c.1925.]
Etching printed in colours, private plate?, 200 x 250mm. 8 x 9¾". Filled holes to lower left margin, one or two in plate.
A portrait of the world's most expensive dog, the Chow Chow named 'Ch. Choonam Brilliantine'.
As reported in The Kennel Gazette, September 1925: '...bred by Mrs Mannooch and was born in March 1924, sired by Akbar out of Ashvale Chop Chop. At his first appearance in the show ring at Cruft’s show this year he was most signally successful and took his first Challenge Certificate at the age of eleven months... at eight Championship shows in succession he was a sterling winner, and at seven consecutive championship fixtures he was awarded the Grand Challenge Prize for best dog in the show, which is probably a record in any breed. The whole of his winning career in this country occupied less than five months and was actually completed before he was sixteen months old. Needless to say Mrs Mannooch received many offers for him and indeed was offered a three figure price the very first day he was exhibited at Crufts and on July 17th this year Ch. Choonam Brilliantine sailed for America, having been sold to Mrs Earl Hoover for £1,800 a price which is, in all probability, the highest ever paid for any dog.’
Dorothy May White (1891 - c.1975) was married to the multimillionaire Howard Earl Hoover of Chicago, chairman of the Hoover Co., the vacuum cleaner empire; her father was President of the Chicago Board of Trade. Perhaps she commissioned this endearing etching of her beloved pooch.
A Chow Chow, a breed of dog first developed in mongolia, and is often referred to in China as the 'Songshi Quan', the puffy-lion dog. It was in the 1800s that clippers ships between China and England brought cargo back and forth of miscellaneous objects, referred to as chow chow. The first chow chow dog appeared in England in the 1830s and retained the name chow chow after been transported in one of those clippers ships during one of the cargo voyages.

Etching on india paper, proof?, 225 x 295mm. 9 x 11½". A full sheet impression.
The character of the animal and its lugubrious expression is expertly captured. Sir Edwin Landseer (1802 - 1873) was the most famous animal painter of the period. He was trained by his father to sketch animals from life, and began exhibiting at the Royal Academy when only 13. Emotive portraits of animals went down very well with the Victorian public, crossing the class divide. Queen Victoria had Landseer paint her pets, while the middle classes bought prints of his work to hang at home.
