Description

First published in 1939, "The Blue Book of Dogs: Sporting, Working, Herding, Non-Sporting" and its counterpart, "The Red Book of Dogs: Hounds, Terriers, Toys" are now available again in expanded collectible editions. Together, they cover pure breed dogdom from A to Z. "The Blue Book of Dogs" showcases 56 breeds of sporting, working, herding, and non-sporting dogs, along with a new section on mixed breeds. In addition to illustrations of the breeds from the original book, there are now more than 300 gorgeous images--from vintage playing cards, postcards, and advertising premiums to illustrations, paintings, and contemporary photography--all especially selected for this edition. The book's original description of each breed's history has been preserved, and its standards updated. Readers will now find a wealth of entertaining contemporary facts and trivia, too. Brimming with anecdotes, amusing pop culture snippets, and hundreds of wonderful images, "The Blue Book of Dogs" will delight and inform dog lovers of all ages.
