"This edition of 'The Dogs of the British Islands' contains so much fresh matter that it may be almost considered a new work. To breeders and lovers of dogs the book is an invaluable one-Here are all the discussions upon moot points of breed, strain, colour, size, and form, which have taken place in the columns of the Field since 1865 ; here the law for judging dogs, and the number of marks to be awarded for the various points are clearly laid down : here the specialities of the most celebrated sires of various species are talked over, and the history, so to speak, of each breed of dog is given. To this are added directions for the management and treatment of dogs in health and in sickness. Altogether it is a vade mecum for the dog fancier and breeder." - Evening Standard.
