The Book of Dogs - as they are found in old sculptures, pictures, engravings, and books., by Ph. Charles Berjeau.1865, London, publisher. pp. 12, 52 plates. Laminated paper covers over boards with gold ink. Rare mid-19th century illustrated dog book, likely done in a small limited edition. Totally poor physical condition. Binding lacks spine, covers detached from text block, text block spine glue dried and perished so all leaves are now loose and individual. Light smudging to a few images, some light age spotting, covers rubbed and well worn along edges. We rarely handle books in this condition unless their currently market scarcity appears to indicate they may warrant it. Book measures: 8 1/2"H X 6 1/2"W. [V1621].
