OF ENGLISH DOGS -
The diversities, the names, the natures, and the properties.
Originally written and published in 1576, this is a reprint of the earliest known work on dog breeds. Translated from the original Latin, it lists all the dog breeds of the time and charts their type and development. As the only known work from the period it is of great significance. The forebears of all modern breeds can clearly be seen in the names and types of dogs described, as can many breeds that are now lost forever. Listed within: Harriers - Terriers - Bloodhounds - Gazehounds - Leviners - Tumblers - Land Spaniels - Water Spaniels - Setters - Gentle Spaniel / Comforter - Shepherd's Dog - Mastiff / Bandog - Wap / Warner - Turnspit - Dancer -
