The Illustrated Book of the Dog was the authoritative book on the breeding and care of pedigree dogs during the Victorian era when, in typical English manner, the wealthy of the day, up to Queen Victoria herself, engaged portrait painters to render their favourite dogs immortal.

In these times are perhaps the seeds of our modern day interest in all manner of pets & in these portraits we see many of the breeds of dogs that are still beloved today. 

Each chromolithographed print is in excellent condition, measuring approximately 10 3/4 inches by 8 1/4 inches on a stiff, creamy paper.  On a few, there are the occasional marginal fox marks as shown.  A facsimile title page accompanies each print.  Surprising portraits such as these are rare, so it is a pleasure to have these delightful prints of some of the world's most famous & best loved breeds of dogs.
