Deerhounds in print from 1881

This original antique print is from the renowned "The Book of The Dog", published by Cassell in the late 1800s. The color printing was of an exceptionally high standard and, most importantly, the illustrations contained within feature some of the finest portrayals of dogs.

It contained the first color illustrations of the Bedlington Terrier, Dandie Dinmont Terrier, Irish Terrier, Yorkshire Terrier, Fox Terrier, Pug, Italian Greyhound, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Irish Water Spaniel, Dachshund, Basset Hounds and Retriever.

The book was first published in London in 1881
