THE MODERN AIREDALE by W. J. Phillips. This early work on the 'King of Terriers' was first published in 1921. First editions are now extremely expensive and very hard to find. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished it, using the original text and photographs. The author was a well-known personality in the Airedale world of his day, and writes from many years of experience. In these pages, he has spared no information likely to be of beneficial help to the Airedale lover. The first portion of this work deals with the origin and earliest period of the Airedale, under its three names: Waterside Terriers, Bingley Terriers, and finally Airedale Terriers. The book's one hundred and sixty pages contain fifteen detailed chapters, including three by other authors: 'Stone Age' of the Airedale. From Waterside Terrier to Airedale Terrier. Arrival of the Airedale. Twenty Years with the Champions. Breeding and Preparation for Shows. Stripping the Airedale by C.W. Buttles. Anatomy of the Dog. Diseases. Handling and Ring Etiquette. Whelping, Rearing, Feeding. Pedigrees and Inbreeding. Standard and Points. Training the Airedale and Hunting Big Game by J.G. Keefe. Airedales on the Farm by W.H. Lingo. A Directory of Leading Breeders. The contents are well illustrated by dozens of vintage photos of famous Airedales, and many line drawings. This is a fascinating read for any Airedale enthusiast or historian of the breed, with much of the information still useful and practical today.
