THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE DOG
Written by David Brian Plummer.
Stock no. 2139626
Published by The Boydell Press. 1st 1995. Very good condition in a almost very good dustwrapper.

A brisk debunking of the tendency to regard dogs as four-footed members of the human family, lacking the ability to speak, but with all the other qualities a human being possesses, and a life-cycle which indulgently assumes one year of a dog's life to be equal to seven human years. Dogs are very different, and in this book details of those physiological differences and accounts for them - and for seeming similarities - by a fascinatingly informative look at the development of the dog from pre-history to the present day. Brown cloth boards, gilt title to spine. B/w photos. ISBN: 0851156371. Some knocks/bumps along cover edges. Small label to front endpaper. Browning to outer page edges. Wrapper is price-cut with edge-tears and chips; a few marks; some browning.
