Small hardback missing dust jacket; in really bad condition but signed by Norton and his human // Norton the Cat and his human friends, Peter Gethers and Norman Stiles, have compilied the purrfect book (illustrations by William Bramhall) of the power behind their masters -- their cat. It has long been suspected that behind every great human is an even greater cat. Now the truth will out, as meticulously documented by that great feline historian, Norton--aka, The Cat Who Went to Paris--and his cohorts, Peter Gethers and Norman Stiles. The world knows all about Nathan Hale. But where are the tributes to Nathan Hale's cat, who uttered the immortal words, "I regret that I have but nine lives to give for my country"? Where are the biographies of Sigmund Freud's cat, who changed the twentieth century with his discover that the primary motivating factor behind all behavior is the urge to rub up against furniture? Why do historians shy away from Marie Antoinette's cat, who actually caused the French Revolution with her dismissive bon mot, "Let them eat dry food"?
