This unusual early work is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. An absorbing read that set out as clearly as possible the main uses to which animals had been put that caused them distress or suffering, and considered whether the blood sports subsisting at the time could rightly or wrongly be described as cruel. A fascinating insight into the emergence of the Animal Rights Movement. Contents Include: Introduction - The Baiting of Animals - Other Pastimes with the Bull and the Bear - Cocking - The Use of Dogs in the Ring - The Legal Trials of Animals - Hunting - Bull-fighting - The Fur and Feather Trade - Vivisection - Dogs and Cats - Horses - Cattle - Birds - Miscellanies - and Index. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
