For thousands of years already the dog has been the faithful companion of man.
Dogs were held in such high esteem in Ancient Egypt that tens of millions were mummified alongside their owners.
One of my favorite things about collecting old books are the vintage style illustrations.
If you love dogs, or love drawing dogs – this is a fun book for your collection.
Small but mighty, this miniature encyclopedia covers over 100 different breeds.
Printed in the Netherlands in 1951. This book is available on my Etsy site, linked here.

The Golden Guides, originally Golden Nature Guides, were a series of 160-page, pocket-sized books created by Western Publishing and published under their “Golden Press” line (primarily a children’s book imprint) starting in 1949.
These books were written by experts in their field and illustrated in a simple straightforward style. Intended for primary and secondary school level readers, the first books were field guides illustrated by James Gordon Irving.
Packed with information, maps, charts and beautiful photographs.
Golden Guides are collectible and make great gifts for nature lovers.
