BASSET HOUND Dog ANTIQUE Dog Print Page plate c1881 by Vero Shaw Cassells and Company Unique gift Christmas Thanksgiving Birthday present
ANTIQUE dog Print 1881 - Mr Everett Millais's Basset hound 'Model'
This exceptional dog print is from "The Illustrated Book of the Dog" by Vero Shaw. The work was published by Cassell and Company of London in 1881. Shaw’s work was one of the earliest works to contain coloured canine plates with very rich vibrant colours.
This is a print of the original woodcut drawing (text back of print). All the prints, engravings, chromolithographs and wood cut prints from this historic publication are very significant and collectible as some of the prints are the first images of several breeds printed and many set the standards of confirmation for modern breeds as seen today.
Each subject was set in British, Scottish or Welsh landscapes or interiors.
This book was an extensive treatise on dog breeds, kennels and kennelling, general management of dogs, exhibiting, buying and selling, and canine medicine and surgery. The beautifully executed dog prints from this volume are highly sought-after collectibles.
Guarantee: This print is an original antique print (132+ years old) and not a modern reproduction.
I guarantee this print to be authentic. Due to its age, some imperfections can be expected eg light foxing at edges of paper.
This would make an delightful present for any dog lover or a special treat for your collection.
