Illustrated with a range of historical photos and engravings, and modern pictures.
A short, well-written, detailed and referenced history of the origins of today's Irish Wolfhound. This book details the breeding activities of the nineteenth century during which two men in particular strove to recreate what was, by the beginning of the 1800s, regarded as an extinct breed. It provides an excellent introduction to the modern history of this "ancient" breed originally developed at a time when Ireland was home to a population of wild wolves.
