'This is a comprehensive, authoritative and responsible book on dogs; the kind of work which has been needed for many years, and which will remain a reliable reference book on canine matters for many years to come.
Over 120 of the world's leading experts have described their particular breeds - their history, care, character and all required pedigree standards. All of the important and popular breeds are fully described, and, in addition, the significant, lesser-known breeds, the breeds which one day might find favour in the wider world outside their native localities. Articles are also included on evolution, anatomy, diseases, nutrition, and books on dogs.'
