hunt

Welcome Home! by Ludwig Bemelmans

Welcome Home!

After a poem by Beverley Boggert. An odd plot, the fox, on a sort of drag hunt, stops and washes his paws so that he can escape home, but the subject allows wonderful deep reds: horses streaming through the forest, confused hounds, and a cozy family den. Note: This book has been sold.

Not for sale, from our own collection. I am listing this in the hope of finding out more about its illustrator. Wonderful swift sketches of horses in the field and stable, this essay on the hunt begins quoting Jorrocks and ends with English, "May you hunt forever." Several pages are addressed to women riders. Lovely paper and coloration. This book is available  from archive.com in Kindle, with not quite the same ambiance! In French, its original language. A copy, inscribed in 1916, exists as a contribution to the biodiversity library by the Webster Family Library of Veterinary Medicine (archive.org) Veterinary Library's copy part of the John A. Seaverns Equine Collection. Additional jpgs available.
