The images for The Cats’ Party were made by American illustrator Justin H. Howard and ably capture the high spirits and energy of the tale. Howard started his career in 1856 drawing for comic papers like Yankee Notions. This original illustration of a dancing scene, which includes corrections, color changes, removal of an extraneous guest at right, provides valuable evidence of the production process at McLoughlin Brothers. 

Adopted by Nancy Rosin, in memory of Henry D. Rosin, MD
