Dogs of All Nations: A Representative Collection of All Known Breeds of Dogs at The Panama-Pacific International Exposition, 1915, by W. E. Mason, facsimile edition.
While nowadays canine fever is all the rage in society and culture, there was a time that dog breeding and dogs shows were an elite and exclusive activity. Vertvolta Press is proud to present this 104 year-old catalog to a new generation of dog-lovers, full of delightfully arcane and obsessive descriptions and articles of what a breed 'should' be.
But in our more enlightened era we know two things:
1) mutts are cool too, and 2) they're all good doggos!
"A complete work, profusely illustrated, bearing on the world's different varieties of the dog, grouping under their several nationalities, with descriptive matter explaining the characteristics and utility of each."
