About this title


THE YORKSHIRE TERRIER BY S. JESSOP A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT. Originally published in 1920, this extremely rare early work on the Yorkshire 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 of the day. The book's 52 pages cover all aspects of the Yorkshire Terrier. Beginning with the origin of the breed, it moves on to discuss buying, breeding, feeding and showing amongst many other topics. The author pays particular attention to the "Cultivation of the Coat". There is a "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 Yorkshire Terrier enthusiast or historian of the breed but 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. Chapters Include: I. THE ORIGIN OF THE YORKSHIRE TERRIER II. HINTS TO BEGINNERS, WITH FULL DESCRIPTION OF THE YORKSHIRE TERRIER III. CULTIVATION OF THE COAT IV. MANAGEMENT: REARING EXERCISING FEEDING BEDDING V. EXHIBITING VI. YORKSHIRE TERRIER CLUBS LIST OF ILLUSTRATIONS: HUDDERSFIELD BEN MR AND MRS HARDMAN WITH A FEW OF THEIR FAVOURITES AND TROPHIES ROWLEY THE GRAND DUKE OVERDALE MARQUIS CH. QUEEN OF THE FANCY
