By Rawdon Lee.
A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT.
This superb book of the Fox Terrier was first published in London 1889 and even today remains a classic book of the breed. First editions are very rare, expensive, and much sought after.
VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have now republished it, using the original text and the splendid illustrations by the famous dog artist Arthur Wardle.
Rawdon Lee was a celebrated author of several important dog books and was Kennel Editor of "The Field."
The books one hundred and fifty seven pages contain seven detailed chapters on:- Old Writers on Terriers. -- History and Origins. - Terrier Values. -- Early Shows. -- Famous Dogs. -- Ear Dropping and Other Malpractices. -- Kennels. -- Scale of Points. -- Working and Training. -- Wire-haired Fox Terriers. -- Yorkshire and Devonshire Strains. -- Rev. John Russell's Terriers. -- Breeding and Rearing. -- Preparing for Shows. -- List of Clubs. Etc.
This is a fascinating read for any Terrier enthusiast or historian of the breed, 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.
