Chapters on animals; dogs, cats and horses PDF

Philip Gilbert Hamerton, an art critic of keen insight and wide reputation, whose writings are remarkable for their attractive style, was born in 1834 and died in 1894. The greater portion of his life was spent in France; the rest of it chiefly in one of the wildest and most beautiful parts of Scotland, where he lived as much as possible among his friends, the animals.

 His wife says that "he never could be without a dog," and the following words, in which he prefaces the book ("Chapters on Animals," London, 1874) from which these pages are taken, together with the chapters themselves, will show what a warm loving and kind-hearted master animals had in him. " Having been in the habit of loving and observing animals, as people do who live much in the country, I thought that possibly some of my observations, however trifling in themselves, might interest others whose tastes are similar to my own.

 In this spirit I wrote these chapters, describing what I had seen rather than what other writers had recorded." The pages here given cannot fail to interest readers of every age. They should, moreover, be in a high degree educative to children, and it is with this object in view that the selection has been made.
