Hunting Dogs: Describes in a Practical Manner the Training, Handling, Treatment, Breeds, Etc., Best Adapted for Night Hunting as Well as Gun Dogs for Daylight Sport, by Oliver Hartley.

Originally published/copyrighted in 1909 by publisher A. R. Harding Pub. Co., Columbus Ohio, this is a later reprint by the same publisher -- but still vintage. No date; circa 1920s.

Along with care and breeding, there's info on training hunting dogs specifically for their prey (skunks, opossum, mink, coyote, squirrels, rabbits, deer).

In Part III, Dog Lore, there's a chapter each on "Still Trailers vs. Tounguers" (silent vs. baying dogs), dogs on the trap line, and sledge dogs.

Individual breeds discussed include American Fox Hounds, Beagle, Basset & Blood Hounds, Dachshund, Pointers, Setters, Spaniels, Airedales, Scotch Collies, Coon Hounds, and more.

Many black and white photos and illustrations of dogs.

Back pages are ads for other outdoorsman books by the same publisher, trapping, camping, fishing, bee hunting, etc.

Softcover paperback with salmon-colored covers. Measures 6 1/2 inches by 5 inches; 251 pages, plus ads.

Condition is virtually like new; sound binding, stray mark on front cover, slight discoloration along spine (from being shelved for decades), no writings or rips, creamy satin-gloss pages.

Don't let the awesome condition fool you! This is *not* a cheap modern reprint, but an authentic vintage (nearly antique itself) copy of this classic dog book.
