John Henry Walsh, went by the pseudonym of Stonehenge. From 1857-1888, he served as Editor for the world’s oldest country and field sports magazine, "The Field," which began its publication in 1853.

This image appeared in "The Illustrated London News," February 25, 1888.

His books are listed here, but none of them shed light on a Beardie-like dog. In the numerous editions of The Dog. In Health and Disease, he borrowed the same images for a Scotch Collie and the English Sheepdog used by Youatt from his 1845 book. See below.



1.The Dog. In Health and Disease, etc. London: Longman, Green and Co. (1859).

1867, Reprint of 1st Edition?, London: Longmans, Green, Reader & Dyer, 468 pp. This edition could be a reprint of the 1859 book, as several of the 1872 books state "2nd Edition."

1879, 3rd Edition, London: Longmans, Green and Co., 509 pp.

In the below book, he used a different image for a Scotch Colley in his 1872 edition that was a far cry from the two colley dogs on one image used in his 1878 and 1882 editions. All that can be said is that they all represented different appearing types of Scotch colleys.
