GREYHOUND RACING AND BREEDING By A. Croxton Smith A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT This scarce early work on greyhound racing and breeding was originally published in 1927. It is now very hard to find in its first edition, and consequently increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished it using the original text and photographs as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The author was a well known dog book writer of his day, with his main interest being dogs of a sporting variety. This well researched book will prove of much interest to all with an involvement with greyhounds. Its hundred pages contain nine Detailed chapters, all well illustrated with vintage black and white photographs: How the Sport Originated. Method of Conducting Meetings. System of Handicapping. How to Choose a Dog. The Cost of Racing a Dog. Behind the Scenes. How to Start a Kennel. The Fastest Animal. Heroes of the Track. Rules of the Greyhound Racing Association. Etc. In addition to being a fascinating read for any greyhound enthusiast, the book also contains much information that is still practical and useful 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 republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.Keywords: Greyhound Racing Dogs How To Choose A Dog Animal Heroes Photographs Vintage Black Breed Books Books Series Fastest Animal Conducting Meetings Greyhounds Behind The Scenes Reprint Black And White
