Item description for Terriers - An Illustrated Guide (a Vintage Dog Books Breed Classic) by Darley Matheson...


By Darley Matheson


Originally published in 1922 as "Terriers", this scarce early work on British terrier breeds is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have now republished it, using the original text and photographs, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series.

The book's two hundred and thirteen pages discuss nineteen breeds of terriers originating within the British Isles. (with the possible exception of the Boston Terrier which although bred from a British Bulldog cross, can now rightfully claim to be an American breed). The first part of the book deals with the origins, history, description and standards of each of the nineteen breeds, and includes thirty one vintage photos of typical dogs:

The Fox Terrier. -- The Sealyham Terrier. -- The Welsh Terrier. -- The Scottish Terrier. -- The Cairn Terrier. -- The West Highland White Terrier. -- The Skye Terrier. -- The Clydesdale Terrier. -- The Dandie Dinmont. -- The Border Terrier. -- The Bedlington Terrier. -- The Airedale Terrier. -- The Irish Terrier(Dare-Devil). -- The Kerry (Blue) Terrier. -- The Bull Terrier. -- The Boston Terrier. -- The Black and Tan Terrier. -- The English White Terrier. -- The Yorkshire Terrier.

Part two of the book contains chapters on Feeding. -- Washing, Grooming, and Exercise. -- The Stud Dog. -- The Brood Bitch and Her Management. -- Some Terrier Ailments and Accidents.

This is a fascinating read for any Terrier enthusiast or historian of the breeds, but also contains much information that is still useful and practical today.

Many of the earliest dog breed books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
