    Louis Wain My Funny Animal Book is for sale. We are not able to trace another copy of Louis Wain My Funny Animal Book, which does not have a publisher imprint and is believed that this is a privately printed (possibly by Louis Wain himself) unique Louis Wain illustrated book.

     

    Louis Wain My Funny Animal Book measures a large 10.25 x 8.50 inches and interestingly does not have a publisher listed.  The pages consist of thick boards onto which are pasted the Louis Wain illustrations that measure  a very large 9.00 x 6.50 inches approximately

     

    There are a total of 8 Louis Wain illustrations within this very scarce Louis Wain book with another Louis Wain illustration pasted onto the front board.

     

    It is quite possible that My Funny Animal Book is a privately printed book by Louis Wain which possibly had a very limited print run and circulation.

     

    The Louis Wain My Funny Animal Book binding is in Good + condition with slight wear to the front board; the cloth spine is faded with knocks to the top and bottom, and the plain back board is very clean having only slight marks.

     

    Louis Wain My Funny Animal Book binding and pages are very clean but have old tape removed from the front and back of the book, making the pages in overall Good + condition.

     

    This is an incredibly scarce large Louis Wain book that cannot be traced anywhere else, making this possibly one of the rarest Louis Wain books in existence.
