man's best friend
We are pleased to present our latest catalog highlighting our extraordinary collection of 19th century engravings, lithographs, photographs and paintings illustrating man’s best friend. The dog has long been man’s choice as a companion, guardian, assistant in hunting and friend.
Most of the dogs featured in this catalog belong to the sporting group, and were bred and trained primarily to assist with hunting game. Breeding for appearance was only introduced in the 19th century. Prior, dogs had been bred based on traits helpful for their intended duties. We hope you enjoy this fine selection of British, French and American illustrations of various breeds of dogs!
