Overview

The Great Dane - Embodying a Full Exposition of the History, Breeding Principles, Education, and Present State of the Breed (A Vintage Dog Books Breed Classic) Originally published in 1933, this extremely rare 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 author was a highly respected breeder of the day. The book's 134 pages cover all aspects of the Great Dane. Beginning with the history of the breed, it moves on to discuss buying, breeding, feeding and showing amongst many other topics. The book is lavishly illustrated and features over 30 full page photographs of champion Great Danes of the day, a full descriptive write-up of each dog and their pedigrees.. 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 breed books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are reprinting these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions. These editions are republished using the original text and artwork CHAPTERS: - I: - HISTORY - II: - BREEDING PRINCIPLES - III: - BREEDING POINTS - IV: - REARING AND FEEDING - V: - EXERCISING - VI: - STANDARD OF POINTS - VII: - DEFECTS - VIII. - THE CLUBS AND THE PRESS
