The Pug Who Bit Napoleon

From elaborate Victorian cat funerals to a Regency era pony in a hot air balloon: a thoroughly researched selection of heart-warming, poignant and sometimes humorous animal tales of the 18th and 19th centuries. Meet Fortune, the pug who bit Napoleon on his wedding night; the four-legged friends of Lord Byron, Emily Brontė, and Prince Albert and the treasured pets of Alexander Pope, Samuel Johnson, and Charles Dickens. Less famous, but no less fascinating, are the animal subjects of historical lawsuits, scandals, and public curiosity: Tuppy, the purloined pet donkey; Biddy, the regimental chicken; and Barnaby and Burgho, the bloodhounds hired to hunt Jack the Ripper. Plus everything from field mice and foxes, to alligators and sharks lurking in the Thames.

Paperback, 180 pages, 68 colour and 24 black and white illustrations.
