Overview

A fascinating selection of early writings on the running dog or sight hound. Two hundred well illustrated pages deal with history, origins, breeding, management, sport, showing, etc. Most of this compilation dates from the early 1900s and is sourced from first editions of rare dog books of that period. Breeds discussed are The Greyhound and Allied Eastern Hounds - The Whippet - The Borzoi - Deerhounds - Irish Wolfhounds - Prairie Longdogs - etc. Many of the earliest dog books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
