Reader's note

This striking first edition is a 1974 edition of The Master Cat by David Garnett. This book is The True and Unexpurgated story of Puss in Boots. A legend can be seen from many points of view, and a story which intimately concerns the fortunes of men and cats looks very different when seen through a cat's eyes. Why do cats walk by themselves? Why do they no longer don boots and help younger sons to fortunes and King's daughters? This entertaining result of long researches into feline folklore explains all, and in doing so it not only provides an adventure story of long ago, but also many fascinating sidelights on other related legends - Dick Whittington, the use of cats as witches' familiars and their abominable betrayal by those practisers of black arts - and above all many deep insights into the ways of cats and men.
