THE GREYHOUND: BREEDING, COURSING, RACING, etc. By James Matheson. A
VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT. Originally published in 1929, this extremely
scarce early work on the Greyhound 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
well known greyhound man. He was as successful with his dogs on the track as he
was in the field. His many years of expert knowledge are encapsulated within
this book's two hundred and sixty eight pages. Twenty seven comprehensive
chapters contain valuable information on: Origins and History of Greyhound
Racing. - Future of the Greyhound? - What is a Good Greyhound? - Breeding. -
Walks v. Rearing at Home. - The Whelping Hut. - Management of the Brood Bitch.
- Rearing. - Management of the Saplings. - Training. - Proper Racing Weight. -
Transport and its Effect on Coursing. - Blood. - Selection of the Racing Brood
Bitch. - Kennel Ailments and Their Treatment. - Weights of Growing Greyhounds.
- Measurements of Points. - Rearing and Training Expenses. - The Show
Greyhound. - Breeding and Rearing Champions.

- Greyhounds as
Companions. Kennel Construction. Etc. The contents are well illustrated with
vintage photographs of famous greyhounds and Waterloo Cup winners of the time.
This is a fascinating read for any Greyhound 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.
