ALL SETTERS: THEIR HISTORIES, REARING AND TRAINING. By Freeman Lloyd. A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT. Originally published in the early 1930s, this extremely scarce work on Setters 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 much respected dog man of his time. Terhune says of him, "I know of no other expert who has Lloyds's peculiarly complete equipment of blended education and genius, along all canine lines. With him dogs are an inspired life-study." Although he penned several important dog books, this is probably his best. The book's one hundred and twenty seven pages contain detailed Chapters on: Setters of Yesterday and Today. The Setter in Art. Early Llewellin Setters in America. English Laverack Setters in America. A Glance at the Past. Scenting Powers. Various Paintings of Setters. Training Setters as Gun Dogs. Force Training Collars. Temperament. Rearing. Reminiscences. Irish Setters. The Black and Tan or Gordon Setter. Points of the Gordon, English, and Irish Setter. Recent Setter Importations. All chapters are lavishly illustrated with vintage photos of famous English and American Setters and their use in dog art. This is a fascinating read for any Setter enthusiast or historian of the breed, and also contains much information that is still useful and practical today. "A dog quite unrivalled by any other of the canine species." Maxwell 1833. 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.
