Book of the day: After Rattazzi's dogs on the 19th, justice demands cats today


Kellino, Pamela, and Mason, James, The Cats In Our Lives (Current Books, 1st ed, 2nd printing, 1949). The writer/actor couple’s tale of felines in their lives. Mostly written, and entirely illustrated, by the actor James Mason (1909-84). The website (yes, it’s real), notes, “The news media often reported on the couple’s menagerie of cats which shared their homes, first in Surrey, England and then in Beverly Hills.  So popular were the stories of the famous duo’s felines that in 1949 the Masons published a book entitled The Cats in Our Lives, written by Pamela and illustrated by James, which is currently a hard-to-find and somewhat high-priced title amongst collectors.”


Witty and entertaining. Rare and unusual Hollywoodiana. Hardcover, unclipped dust jacket, very good condition. HBB sale price: $40.
