    Featuring reproductions from rare editions in the British Library, this book surveys dogs in literature and how artists have interpreted them, from Cerberus guarding the gates of Hades in Homer's Iliad to Spot the Dog. Catherine Britton discusses the role of each dog and the authors and artists who created such memorable canine characters as Dogmatix from Asterix, the Hound of the Baskervilles and Lassie.
