"In the neighbourhood of Sealyham badgers have always been common, and also the polecat (or foulmart) appears to have abounded there, although it is now only found in the high places of the Welsh mountains. Captain John Edwardes, who resided at Sealyham, was a keen sportsman in the days following the Crimean War, and he appears to have cherished a life-long vendetta against the badger and the foulmart. There entered into this brain the idea that he might be able to breed a Welsh dog which would be able to go to earth after fox, or invade the 'sett' of the badger, or face a polecat and fight it to the death." Chapters include: His qualities; Sealyham manufacture; Buying a Sealyham pet; Buying by novice breeders; Breeding; Arrival of puppies; Training the puppy; Exhibiting Selayhmas; Hints to pet-owners and novices; Standard description; Specialist clubs; Care of the coat; Common ailments.

We have no breeds to recommend, pills to sell or backs to scratch. We do not breed puppies for sale, nor have we shares in any kennel or Olde Pette Shoppe. We keep dogs because we like them, and what breeds they are will be discovered only by careful deduction from the following pages, with no prizes to the successful detective. Thank you for listening. The rest of the book is mainly about dogs."

Item Description: Thomas Y. Crowell. New York. 1954 1st edition. 8vo (142 x 208mm). Ppx,149. B/w illustrations by Dimitri N. Alexandroff. Red cloth, spine titled in black. Some foxing and use. Good copy in chipped and faded dust-wrapper. End-paper inscription from the author to a former owner. "The giant cutthroat trout's life and death struggle with the angler's hook; a furious great horned owl, trapped in a chicken coop; an injured raccoon seeking food and refuge - these and other dramatic moments in nature's kingdom come vividly to life in the pages of this unusual collection of stories. The background for these stories is the Giant Redwood country of northern California. In this timbered empire dramas of wild life are taking place continually, but most of us have never seen them. Chet Schwarzkopf has - and all of these stories are a result of his observation, a distillation of his years spent in the great outdoors he knows and loves. Mr. Schwarzkopf brings to these stories, too, a respect for the wild creatures who people the redwood region and a great scorn for those who would kill ruthlessly and decimate the far-flung heritage of game and forest that has been given this country.".

Item Description: A. & C. Black London. 1970 1st edition. 4to (189 x 250mm). Pp184. Colour plates of flies, plain plates, illustrations by Donald Downs. Green cloth, spine titled in gilt. Very good in slightly used dust-wrapper and rather used green card slip-case. Presentation inscription by John Veniard to former owner. "A particular feature of flies for still water is that it is necessary to know not only how to dress them but how to fish them and it is here that this book will be especially useful, since in addition to the chapters by John Veniard, who is generally acknowledged as an able angler and a wonderful fly-tier, there are contributions on dressings and fishing techniques by such famous names as Richard Walker, Geoffrey Bucknall and David Collyer, among others. Many of the dressings have not been recorded elsewhere and include flies that have become highly successful on lakes abroad - particularly North America and New Zealand." Many terrific lists of dressings, including: Dapping flies; The John Henderson patterns; The Geoffrey Bucknall patterns; The Richard Walker patterns; The David J. Collyer patterns; The John Goddard Stillwater patterns; The "Taffy" Price patterns; The Roy Masters patterns; Farlow's "Murderers"; Welsh patterns; Derek Moseley's Irish mayflies (for lakes); Dr. Michael Kennedy's sedge flies and pupa dressings; A.J. Hayter midge pupa dressings; Terry Thomas sedge flies; the A.C.R. Howman ("Alastair Ross") nymphs; New Zealand lake patterns - plus sections on individual patterns such as Alec Iles' "Breatherlizer," the Polystickle and others. Bookseller Inventory # 41167
