The Book of Dogs: An Intimate Study of Mankind's Best Friend

£12.99

Product description

The dog is the oldest friend man has among the animals - very much the oldest. Compared with him, the cat and the horse are new acquaintances. Probably we shall never know when the friendship began, but the bones of dogs lying side by side with the bones of primitive men tend to show that it was in very, very remote times.

Inscription at front. Book shows signs of age such as tanning/foxing on some pages, wear to cover and slight looseness of spine. Small tears on pages 10 and 11.
