Staffordshire dogs took pride of place on the mantelpiece of 19th century homes. This work is structured literally on the A-Z principal that the title implies and breeds are taken in alphabetical order. In addition to comments on the individual models there is also a concise definition of the individual dog breed. While some characteristics of certain dog breeds have changed over the past hundred years, thanks to the potter’s skill most are still instantly recognisable. This is a survey of the collecting subject and useful reading for the serious collector.
