Background:

This charming series of Victorian prints tells the story of Dame Trot and a cat she adopted named Puss, and how her "old house dog" Spot and Puss became friends.

Following is the beginning of the story:

     Dame Trot hurried home with this beautiful cat;
     Went upstairs to take off her cloak and hat;
     And when she came down was astonished to see
     That Puss was very busy preparing the tea.

The chromolithographs were produced by the English printing firm Kronheim and Company, founded by Joseph Kronheim (1810-1896).   Kronheim came to England from Germany in the mid-1830s settling first in Edinburgh as an engraver and lithographer.  He then moved to London and started his own printing business in the mid-1840s.
