Gundogs — Training and Field Trials - P. R. A. Moxon

Swan Hill Press, 2006, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.

17th edition. [First Edition: 1952, Popular Dogs Publishing] Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “This guide to all aspects of working and training gundogs has become a popular classic, as demonstrated by the fact that it has now reached its sixteenth edition. The author’s approach is thoroughly practical and his style is that of a practised writer who is able to make his meaning perfectly clear. It is the work of an expert who has great confidence in his methods and can also convey that confidence on to the reader. The selection of a suitable puppy and preliminary training are found in the first three chapters, followed by retrieving from water, practical shooting work, and then the more specialised areas of spaniel, pointer and setter training. Field trials are explained and the current Kennel Club regulations are included in an appendix. Closing chapters offer advice on housing, feeding and general management.”

Illustrated by Terry Bailey (Photos.). Size: 10" x 7¾". Green boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 146 pages.
