The Dogs of the British Islands free pdf Excerpt from The Dogs of the British Islands: Being a Series of Articles on the Points of Their Various Breeds, and the Treatment of the Disease to Which They Are Subject Twenty years have nearly elapsed since I first undertook for Messrs. Longman the task of revising the book on the natural history of the dog published by them for Mr. Youatt. As far as foreign varieties are ooncemed that careful observer possessed very great advantages in having access to the collection of dogs which belonged to the Zoological Society soon after its institution but which owing to disease was very soon abandoned. Our native breeds, however were not so well described or illustrated by him, and his book did not meet the demands of the public whose attention was just then(1859) specially drawn to them by the contemplated establishment of dog shows which, in the same year were instituted at Newcastle and Birmingham. By great good fortune I was enabled to obtain much reliable information upon most of our breeds- and many of the illustrations which were then given in the volume on "The Dog in Health and Disease" (notably Mr. Lukey's "Wallace," Mr. Stockdale's bulldog "Top," Mr. Morrison's pug and English terrier Mr. Govan's Italian greyhound Mr. Georges Sussex spaniels and the specimens of the Dandie Dinmont) are nearly, if not quite equal in fidelity to those which Mr. Baker has recently drawn with so much accuracy and spirit. In spite however of all the efforts I could make it was found impossible to settle many of the points in dispute, and the several descriptions given were too loose in detail to serve as guides to young breeders or incipient judges. For this reason I commenced in 1865 a series of articles in the Fields beginning with that on the pointer in which I made the attempt not only to describe in detail all his points, but to settle their numerical value on the basis just laid down by the National Dog Club, by means of a committee instituted by myself, and embracing most of the prominent breeders and judges of the day.
