From hunting hounds and guard dogs to pets that 'satisfy the delicateness of dainty dames', dogs appear frequently in medieval books, both as part of their illustrations and as the subject of stories and veterinary advice. This attractive gift book presents excerpts on canine topics from the writings of scholars, poets, monks and moralists, alongside images reproduced from manuscripts in the British Library's collections.
