Monsieur Pouf and the Parlour Sybil

Added on by David Caines.

I have added more curios to the Some Dusty Things section of this site including the cover of picture book 'Monsieur Pouf' (1890) (he's a poodle) by E.L. Shute. A little taster: Monsieur Pouf was a poodle-dog, in Russia born and bred, When ordered he would beg, or die, Or dance and shake his head.

He was bought by a kind Papa, With all his puffs and curls, And brought home in the railway train, to play with his little girls.

Look out for 'The Parlour Sybil' too.
