THE
POPULAR
SERIES
THE "POPULAR"  SERIES OF BOOKS: With new adherents pouring into the Show Trial and related  Pure bred Dog
Breeding ranks it became necessary for authoritative books for beginner and novice breeders,  The Popular Series of
books, became the benchmark for sound advice and down to earth common sense instructions on all aspects of the
Pedigree World.   The Standards of breeds are discussed, and in most case illustrated, and knowledge passed on in a
way that should be required reading for all newcomers - whether showing, trailing, breeding or aspiring to go on to
Judging.
The Authors are all people who have served their time in the Sport, and their knowledge is relied on by generation after
generation, and is trusted and quoted again and again, requiring these books to be revised and reprinted many times
over, forming a basis for many discussions.  The mark of success being the sometimes worn and used appearance of a
favourite breed book.    Recently I picked up a copy of a POPULAR book and read a review published by the KENNEL
GAZETTE (London) which said " It is refreshing to find in a book of this type a really thorough history of the breed and
plenty of diagrams to illustrate good and bad points.....a very readable and informative volume which will serve as a breed
reference book to both new and experienced owners a like."
I therefore have no hesitation in recommending my favourite Series to all dog lovers.

1951 - Mr Hubbard writes:  This is a series of breed handbooks each written by an authority of
general or specialist repute, and copiously illustrated with engraving, prints and photographs of
important early and modern dogs.  Each book is an up-to-date monograph on a particular breed or
variety.

Mr Hubbard Edited every book that became part of his legacy to dogdom, and each book only differs
in the number of pages.  Under the aged Dust Jackets are, in most cases, hardboards of surprisingly
good condition, but take care of the original Dust Jackets for they add to the value of your Treasures

2014:  These books have become Collectors item's and I aimed to own a copy of the 36 breeds
covered. Now  it is time to strengthen other collections - or perhaps start somebody else searching for
these wonderfully informative and attractive old books and so keep the history of these breeds intact.

1951 Rowland Johns - writes:  This is a series of breed handbooks containing "simply written
guidance for those who  keep dogs of popular breeds"

This is the pattern of every book that became part of his legacy to dogdom, and each book only differs in the number of
pages.  Under the aged Dust Jackets are, in most cases, hardboards of surprisingly good condition, but take care of the
original Dust Jackets for they add to the value of your Treasures

2014:  These books have become Collectors item's and I aimed to own a copy of the breeds covered; now  it is time to
strengthen other collections - or perhaps start somebody else searching for these wonderfully informative and attractive
old pocket books and so keep the history of these breeds intact.
