A MEMBER OF CHINESE SOCIETY.
From the seventh century A.D., when the first Pekingese is said to have been presented to one of the first T'ang Emperors, until 1860, Pekingese were seldom seen outside the Royal Palaces of China. In that year Admiral Lord John Hay brought the first specimens back to England, but in changed surroundings the breed still claims the pampered luxury of its royal ancestors. Drawn by Nina Scott-Langley 1934. Reprinted from Hutchinson's Dog Encyclopaedia (England, circa 1935).
