Originally published in the 1930s, this very scarce early work on the Great Dane is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished it, using the original text and photographs, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS SERIES. The book's one hundred and fifty pages contain thirteen detailed chapters and many black and white photos of famous Great Danes of the Day : Danes of Today. Modern History. Choosing and Caring for a Dane. Breeding Problems. Breeding, Feeding and Rearing. Exhibiting Danes. Standard of Points. Pedigrees. Imported Danes. Charts of Line Breeding. Analysis of Litters. Heights. Appendix of Challenge Certificate Winners Since 1900. K.C.S.B. Members 1933-1937. Kennel Prefix and Affix. Also included are a number of illustrated advertisements for Great Dane Kennels. This is a fascinating read for any Great Dane 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 early 1900s 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.
