Foyles Handbooks:  My collection shows that these publications appeared in
the mid 1950's and flourished with more and more breeds being covered by
the experts of the day.   The  early copies are highly prized as Antiques of
tomorrow and are already claiming some very reasonable prices as
COLLECTOR'S ITEMS.  They have progressed through a number of styles
and colours, but have kept their handy flat hardboard size.  The information is
of-the-best and with the repeat edition your favourite breed/s can be kept up-
to-date with instructions that can be relied on.
