Om boka

"Bulldogdom" by A. G. Sturgeon is a Vintage Dog Books Classic reprint.
Originally published in 1920, this extremely rare early work on the bulldog is
both very expensive and very 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. This book's 188 pages cover all aspects of the bulldog. Beginning
with the history of the breed, it moves on to discuss buying, breeding, feeding
and showing amongst many other topics. This book is illustrated throughout with
the lovely line drawings of R. Ward Binks, and contains a double-page spread of
an original pedigree document. There is a "standard description of the correct
appearance and the several points in detail of a perfect bulldog". The final
chapter features over 40 photographs of champion bulldogs of the day, a full
descriptive write-up of each dog and their pedigrees. Also included in the text
are a number of period adverts for dog products featuring
bulldogs.

This is a fascinating read for any bulldog 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 reprinting these classic works in affordable,
high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
