Animals at Home: Woolf, Rose Yeatman/Eric Vredenburg.Raphael Tuck  1907-1910

Animals at Home: British Domestic Animals and British Wild Animals.

Caught in the torchlight! A surprised fox on the cover. In a chatty tone with many anecdotes, the author writes about selective breeding, the history of each animal, and its modern life. "From time immemorial Man and Horse have been such close companions that the mere suggestion of the latter passing from our streets and cities, causes a pang of regret to those who love the docile creatures.... for motor traffic and flying machines are ousting man's faithful servants and depriving them not only of the right to work, but the right to live." I would guess the plates are repeated in other books in this series. A charming, inexpensive old book in nice condition.
