— 1899 – Hardback – Very Scarce –

Bennett; Dr. O. P. [TAZEWELL]The Collie – America’s first Collie monogram includes the usual chapters on breed origin, standard etc. Its extensive Rough Collie history divided into chapters covering the British and American Show Scene separately, the former contributed by Charles H. Wheeler [EDGBASTON] is of particular interest, and the book’s chronological order not only makes finding entries easy, it also gives a true feel for the Collie’s development both sides of the Atlantic. Liberally illustrated with b/w photographs, although their size and quality could be improved to advantage — 1917 (2nd updated edition published 1924 – with a 3rd edition, the British section updated by T. M. Halpin in 1942) – Hardback – Scarce – USA/English
publisher: The Washington Publishing Co, USA
