    Dogs in Medieval Manuscripts (New Edition)

    A fascinating insight into medieval life, featuring canine interpretations both amusing and savage. A companion title to Cats in Medieval Manuscripts, one of a number of books by British Library Publishing exploring medieval art. Attractively packaged in a hardback gift-book format

    Throughout the Middle Ages, medieval manuscripts often featured dogs, from beautiful and loving depictions of man’s best friend, to bloodthirsty illustrations of savage beasts, to more whimsical and
    humorous interpretations.

    Featuring stunning illustrations from the British Library’s rich medieval collection, Dogs in Medieval Manuscripts provides – through discussion of dogs both real and imaginary – an astonishing picture of the relationship of dogs to humans in the medieval world.
