Originally published in Edinburgh 1892. One of the most important books dealing with the noble breed of Scottish Deerhound. The illustrated contents include detailed chapters on: The Supposed Origin of Dogs From Various Past and Present Day Authorities – Various Theories Respecting the Original Scottish Deerhound – The Modern Deerhound – Deerhounds in Connection with Deerstalking – Plates and Descriptions of Celebrated Deerhounds – Proposed Deerhound Club – Appendix etc. Many of the earliest dog books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
