a young dog (and beautiful)

thanks vintageprintable.com. (PD)
Canis Barberus Albus is the inscription at upper left in this lovely Italian illustration of a young dog. It seems to mean something like "bearded white dog."  I know no more about time time or provenance of this piece except that it comes from a naturalist's text.
