British Dogs

Excerpt from British Dogs: Their Varieties, History, Characteristics, Breeding, Management and Exhibition, Illustrated With Portraits of Dogs of the Day When reminded by the Publisher that a dozen or so lines of Preface were needful in introducing "British Dogs" to the public, the following questions were forcibly presented to my mind: First, whether the book should have been written; and, secondly (given the necessity for it) whether I should have undertaken the work. Both these questions I propose handing over to the reader for solution, as I fear I might not be altogether an unprejudiced judge; and in doing so I trust to his good nature to treat leniently all faults, and to his good sense to assimilate whatever may be found worthy. The object aimed at has been to give, as far as obtainable, a sketch of the origin of each breed, and an accurate description of the points of excellence of each variety as demanded by modern taste. Only the initiated know the minute distinctions between breeds and individual dogs, patent to the subtle discrimination of the present-day philo-kuon.
