A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT A HISTORY AND DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLIE OR SHEEPDOG IN HIS BRITISH VARIETIES By Rawdon Lee. This superb book of the Collie was first published in London 1890, 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 superior dog books and was Kennel Editor of "The Field" for many years. The books one hundred and sixty four pages contain nine detailed chapters: Early History. The Collie. Early Shows and Winners. The Smooth-coated Collie. The Old English "Bob-tailed" Sheep Dog. Trials with Sheep. Collie Clubs and Collie Standards. Management, Breeding, Showing, etc. This previously rare historical record of the Collie will prove of much interest to all enthusiasts and historians of the breed, and 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.
