Synopsis

"the ultimate homage to our canine companions" - The Daily Mail

WITH A FOREWORD BY CLARE BALDING, THIS BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED BOOK SHOWCASES OUR LOVE OF DOGS THROUGH THE AGES.

Beneath the streets of London's Mayfair lies an unexpected and extraordinary archive - a collection of over two million dog-related photos and artwork amassed over the last 150 years. The Kennel Club is the oldest and most illustrious such organisation in the world, and its collection of canine curiosities gives a unique insight into the strong bond between humans and dogs from Victorian times onwards.

This book showcases 130 unique vintage photos and illustrations, most of which have never been published before, accompanied by text telling the stories behind the images. From moving photos of soldiers' companion dogs in the trenches of the First World War to a rare photogravure of 'Dandy', the winner of the first organised dog show in 1859, this book is an original and stylish gift for dog and art lovers alike.
