GREAT DANES: PAST AND PRESENT BY DR MORELL MACKENZIE A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT. Originally published in 1912, this extremely rare early work on the Great Dane is much sought after. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished it, using the original text and photographs, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The author was a highly respected breeder of the day and book's 222 pages cover all aspects of the Great Dane. It starts with the history of the breed and moves on to discuss buying, breeding, feeding and showing amongst many other topics. It also features over 50 photographs of champion Great Danes of the Day. This is a fascinating read for any great Dane afficionado 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 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are reprinting these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. CHAPTERS: I: HISTORY II: BREEDING PRINCIPLES III: THE MAIN BREEDING POINTS IV: DESIRABLE POINTS, AND DEFECTS V: MATING, WHELPING AND REARING VI: CLUBS AND STANDARD OF POINTS VII: GREAT DANE TYPE VIII. COLOUR BREEDING IX. FEEDING X. KENNELS AND EXERCISE XI. CHARACTER AND ANECDOTES XII. COMMONER AILMENTS OF GREAT DANES XIII. SHOWS AND SHOWING
