This volume contains James Edmund Harting’s 1841 work; “A Short History of the Wolf in Britain”. With information on natural history, habits, habitat, and decline, this fascinating volume will appeal to those with an interest in the wild animals of Britain’s history. It would make for a great addition to collections of related literature. James Edmund Fotheringham Harting (1841 - 1928) was an English ornithologist and naturalist, responsible for editing 'The Zoologist' magazine, and a renowned expert on Falconry. Many vintage texts such as this - particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before - are increasingly hard to come by and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
