Description
 
Mark Bryant (au). Generals, presidents, monarchs, poets, painters, philosophers, explorers, scientists, courtesans, & other notables who appear here all doted on their pets -- to often curious extremes. This amusing book sheds comic new light on the lives of some of history’s most prominent figures. For example, the Cromwells’ pet monkey kidnapped baby Oliver & dragged him to the rooftop. Casanova’s parrot raucously repeated in the streets a stream of obscenities attached to his master’s former amour. Lord Byron kept a bear in his rooms at Cambridge because the univ. did not allow dogs. Dorothy Parker called her pooch Woodrow Wilson. The cases in this lively volume reveal much about the private quirks & personal idiosyncrasies of the pet owner. Illustrated.
