Description
Archaeological evidence of truly domestic dogs dates back to the Stone Age, and the long association that followed—with dogs living alongside people as hunters and companions, as guardians and guides—has a significant role in history and myth and in a wealth of art and artifacts. With beautifully reproduced and photographed works from the British Museum appearing on virtually every page, this book is a delightful visual history of the dog in human culture, from the Townley Greyhounds—a pair of affectionate dogs sculpted in 1st-century Rome—to a drypoint etching of a sleeping puppy by Rembrandt.

"Drawing from the immense art collection from the British Museum, Catherine Johns ... provides a great history of the dog, and its near relatives, but the true beauty of this book is just the variety of ways dogs have been portrayed through the ages and how they have become such a part of our cultural history, regardless of the culture.... The dog lover will find much to enjoy in this book, both informational, and artistic."—Sacramento Book Review
