To judge by the osteological remains which the researches of geologists have brought to light, there was perhaps scarcely a county in England or Wales in which, at one time or another, wolves did not abound, while in Scotland and Ireland they must have been even still more numerous. This book gives early accounts of the wolf in the British Isles until its demise around 1760.
This treatise is taken from James Harting's British Animals Extinct Within Historic Times which was published in 1880. Also covered in that book were the Bear, Beaver, Reindeer, Wild Boar and Wild White Cattle. If there is sufficient interest forthcoming from the public the present publishers will consider reissuing the remainder of the book in the same format of A Short History of the Wolf.
