With settings ranging from American mining towns to stately British homes to rural Japan, and a cast of characters including princesses, cowboys, clergymen, actresses, toddlers, and octogenarians, more than 250 antique photographs of dogs and their owners are published here for the first time in this enchanting collection. While most portraits are amusing, charming, or beautiful, others are rare gems, among them an 1871 image of Queen Victoria’s personal servant with four of her favorite canines. Captivating and original, this is a fascinating insight into the origins of the art of photography, a social record of a bygone era, and a testimony to the timeless relationship between dog and man.
About the Author: Libby Hall is a former photojournalist and the author of Postcard Cats, Postcard Dogs, Prince and Other Dogs, and Prince and Other Dogs II.
