This photogravure has been taken from Maud Earl's portfolio British Hounds and Gun-Dogs, which was published in a limited edition of 500 copies in 1902 by the Berlin Photographic Company.
The dogs shown here are Clumber Harriers called Lively, Desperate and Dora and they belonged to Her Grace the Duchess of Newcastle. The Duchess involvement with dogs knew no bounds, keeping a pack of Harriers at Clumber alongside her show dogs. Of the breed, Lady Gifford MH wrote: Indeed the breed of hound that can boast of possibly greater antiquity that any other. For did not the cavalry soldier Xenophon at the age of 24 keep a pack of Harriers, over 2, 000 years ago
