POSTCARD DOGS - Compiled by Libby Hall (Bloomsbury)
Published:  Great Britain - 2004 capturing the cards of 1910  This book is in NEW condition.
“When starting searching fairs for postcards of Dogs, wildly sentimental images that in modern medium seem
mawkish and unattractive, became something quite different when looked back at through a hundred intervening
years. How could one resit a dog crying real tears while thinking of his master at the front in World War One, or an
Edwardian Tea Party given for a child’s dog…….”
   The photo of book does not do it justice!

Well all dog lovers, those interested in the history of their breed, those interested in breed histories, those who
WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH about their breed's history in Australia - over the years I have read breed 'histories' of
breeds in Australia and noticed the 'author' hasn't even check this fabulous work!

the binding is good and solid, the pages are in lovely condition for their age

COMMON MARKET PRICE: you'll find this title listed with booksellers for up to US$1280 today but I have seen it
listed much higher, the lowest price in the ABEbooks.com search this week was US$675 = AUD$835), and the
sellers have placed a realistic price on this copy - as this was a fund raiser for the VCA library I hope you bid long

now and only require exactly what I paid.
