Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THE MODERN KERRY BLUE TERRIER BY VIOLET E. HANDY and Others. A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT. Originally published in 1933, this extremely rare early work on the Kerry Blue Terrier 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, exhibitor and judge of Kerry Blue Terriers. This was the first comprehensive book of the breed to be written. The book's eighty pages cover all aspects of the Kerry Blue Terrier. Several of the nine Detailed chapters have been contributed by other well known experts on the breed. Commencing with the origins and history of the breed, it moves on to discuss buying, breeding, feeding and showing, amongst many other topics. There is an illustrated Standard description of the correct appearance and scale of points and a number of excellent photos of famous dogs of the day. This is a fascinating read for any Kerry Blue Terrier enthusiast or historian of the breed and 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 republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
