A lively day on the stall yesterday amongst friends and passers-by where much was bought and sold, tea was swilled by the gallon and all devils put to the sword.   Amongst the purchases early in the day an armful of illustrated dog books published between-the-wars by Country Life and Scribner of New York including 'Just Dogs - Pencil and Pen Sketches' by the artist K.F Barker of whom John O'London's once said, 'Mr. K.F. Barker has an uncanny skill in drawing dogs.  He can put a dog's whole character into the expression in its eye'.
