From the Dust Jacket: "FAITHFUL FRIENDS is a superb collection of the wonderfully diverse and prolific observations that have been recorded about dogs and their relations with us through the ages. The fruit of many years' research by a lifelong breeder and dogman, the sources here are as varied as the subjects they explore. FAITHFUL FRIENDS contains joyously funny, sometimes entrancing, often serious and informative descriptions that range from classical Greece to contemporary Britain and America, from sportsmen to breeders, philosophers to ploughmen, poets and politicians to kings. Here are the things worth saying about canine character, form and variety; friendship, fidelity and constancy; herding and hunting, rural pursuits and companionship. Many writers have commented on the camaraderie and good cheer whenever dog-lovers meet; their best work is given here. There are observations on the dog's extraordinarily acute senses and natural intelligence, and finally there are poignant and inventive epitaphs on the inevitable end of the friendship." Bound in the original gilt-lettered red boards. . First U.S. Edition. Hard Cover. Fine condition./Near Fine dust jacket.. 8vo. x, 533pp..

About About Books

About Books (Genny and Michael Winne, proprietors, formerly of Parsippany, New Jersey) has been selling rare and OP books since 1985. Besides book fairs and mail-order catalogues, long-time collectors and dealers will remember our lengthy For Sale ads in the Antiquarian Bookman and similar magazines. Our inventory of over 40,000 volumes is especially strong in the specialties listed, but contains fine books in a variety of other fields as well. Because most of our books are stored in protective boxes, rather than on shelves, they cannot be viewed as a whole. If you wish to visit us to examine specific titles, please provide 24 hours notice and we will make them available for your inspection. Phone calls to (702) 750-2722 are welcome, but please, only between the hours of 8am and 10pm (west coast time).
