I bought this book sight unseen expecting a treasure trove of dog art. While it does contain plenty of art I was very dissapointed in that a huge portion of the prints are in black and white. I don't know of too many artists that paint in only black and white and grays. I would have given this book a far higher rating if the prints would have been in color and larger. You have to give it to the author for the scope of the collection within the covers, but I'm an Irish Wolfhound fan and there were NO paintings of wolfhounds in the book other than a few paintings that had a wolfhound in them with several other breeds (none were indexed). If you're a dog fan, buy the book "Mondo Canine"- you won't be dissappointed.

I purchase this book for my mother for Christmas but I had a hard time wrapping it because I couldn't put it down. By Far this was the most interesting dog painting book I have ever seen. My mother called me a couple days after I gave it to her and she just loves it. She tells me that she has not put it down since she got home. If you love dogs and art work this is a must purchase book.

I am a professional art dealer. This book is well referenced. Beautiful color images.
I just wish there were more full color pictures of the less famous yet equally accomplished artists work of the period.
