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.

I guarantee this illustration/page to be authentic. Due to its age, some imperfections can be expected eg light foxing at edges of paper.
