Read Books Ltd, Jul 19, 2017 - Pets - 248 pages
First published in 1740, this is a witty and irreverent look at the social scene and social ills of 18th century England, all seen through the eyes of our canine narrator, Pompey. A lap-dog passed from owner to owner during parties and soirees. A delightful and surprisingly modern take on pomp and pride in high and low social circles. This text has been republished here for its historical and cultural significance. Including a specially commissioned introduction on dogs in fiction.
