This book is a must for any serious student of early Natural History- The chapter on Dogs was essential in my studies of early Working Dogs in Britain - both Ralph Beilby and Thomas Bewick (who did the woodcut illustrations) were natives of Northumberland and spent most of their lives there. It is interesting to note that Bewick suggests the Australian Dingo had characteristics similar to the wolf - and in very modern times the "experts" have finally accepted that the Dingo is a wolf. The illustrations in this book are excellent throughout and give a wonderful insight into quadrupeds of the period from around 1790.
