[NY]: Holiday House, (1939). (1939). Very good. - 8vo, gray pictorial cloth (lightly soiled; spine slightly faded; light stains to front cover) titled in red with decorations in red on spine & in red with image of the gentlemanly Porko seated in an armchair stamped in red on front cover. 165 pp. (name on front endpaper). B&W full-page & textual illustrations by Fritz Eichenberg. Very good. First edition.Robert Davis heard tales of the legendary Padre Porko, a wise and benevolent spirit in the form of a pig, in Spain. Stone carvings of pigs found in southern Spain "must antedate the Moorish occupation, as the Mohammedan considered swine unclean. They may even go back beyond the visigoth and the Roman, to the original Iberic stock, which was Celtic. In Celtic regions the pig is much valued, and is the most important domestic animal." [Author's Foreword]. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 1016
