UBC #12 - The Book of Jones by Ralph Steadman

The Book of Jones
By Ralph Steadman
Harcourt Brace c1997 1st Edition HC

Ralph Steadman was the maverick who frequently collaborated with Hunter S. Thompson. In this book, Steadman collaborates with a highly neurotic, temperamental feline named Mr. Jones [note: i added the "Mr."]. here's my favorite passage:
    "I have never met a cat more insolent and yet more appealing than Jones. He never needed to judge a situation; he was the situation. God knows, i'm not much of an animal person - at home i try to cope with three sheep and one tiny rabbit, and so far I have three bags of wool and a ton of rabbit [expletive]."
this is a first edition, first printing copy!
