9781905124312: Terriers for Sport (History of Hunting Series - Terrier Earth Dogs)

TERRIERS FOR SPORT (History of Hunting Series - Earth Dogs) By Pierce O'Conor. Pierce O'Conor was a highly regarded Terrier Man of his day. This, his first book, "Terriers for Sport" which was published in 1922, has never before been reprinted and only a few copies of the original still remain. Read Country Books has now republished this early work using the original text and its rare vintage terrier work photos. The book is divided into concise chapters including: Getting a Team together Fox and Badger Digging. Badger Digging. Badger Hunting at Night. Otter Hunting. Otter Dogs and their Training. Stoat Hunting. Rats and Ratting. Rabbits. Water Hens. Casualties and First Aid. Management etc. The chapters on Otter Dogs and Otter Hunting with Spears were among the earliest recorded writings on this type of terrier work. In addition, the publishers have also added a significant amount of extra material gleaned from other early writings on working terriers. There are two new chapters by distinguished dog writer Theo Marples - The Sealyham Terrier as a Sporting Companion and Symptoms + Treatment of Common Ailments - plus 3 other articles by noted sportsmen of the day - Cairns are Working Terriers, Working Terriers Past amp Present and The Hunt Terrier Man and His Dogs. The book also contains a large number of B+W photos of terriers and terriermen that have never been reprinted before. Pierce O'Conor's wealth of knowledge and experience shines through the pages of this fascinating book which deserves a place on any true terrier man's shelf. N.B. The author has written two working terrier books, and this title should not be confused with his other book :- "Sporting Terriers. History, Training and Management." which was published in 1926. "Terriers For Sport" is available in a quality soft cover format. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
