Going big for the grand finale of vintage dog book week on the blog: a selection of beagle images.
(Panniers are basket or box type structures slung over the back of a horse or attached to the sides of a bicycle. How I would love to see a pack of beagles carried in a pair of those!)
I want to run into this picture and scoop up this fabulous little boy:

I’m really enjoying this vintage dog project. Where did you find all these old books? I am making a list of them, and hopefully can dig up copies for myself.
Most (all?) of these books are in the public domain. You can search for them online and find them in various places but there are a couple of caveats: Some have been reprinted as “scholar select” works and you can buy actual copies but the one I have is such poor quality I never bought another and don’t plan to. Many of the online versions are also sub standard – some have omitted all images, others have black and white versions of what originally appeared as color images in the book. So it’s worth looking around for a reasonable quality version (naturally the books are old and may contain library marks, yellowed pages, etc.). I’m glad you enjoyed the posts. It was far more time intensive than I anticipated but I really wanted to be as accurate as possible and get the best quality images I could find.
