116 pp, small 4to (10 3/4" H). Beautifully illustrated throughout in black, white and buff with Cecil Aldin's wonderful dog portraits. "This book is about ordinary dogs - dogs of character. In particular it charts the lives of Cracker and Micky, one an Irish Wolfhound, the other a Bull terrier. With them as models Cecil Aldin plots a course for would-be dog owners and dog trainers. Where do you go to buy a dog, how do you set about training him or her, how do you cure bad habits, how do you feed your dog. All these questions are answered. But this book contains a good deal more. It is full of the most enchanting stories of dogs. It is full of advice and stories told by a real lover of dogs and the advice is as true and revealing now as when the book was first published in 1927." Light edge wear, light browning to edges of text block with foxing specks on top of text block, light wrinkling at bottom of spine, light browning to pages. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine, very light rubbing, one tiny closed tear, foxing on inside surface - mainly at top edge, light fading to spine colour.
