Dogs & Dog Training
Vereen Bell was a promising young author with three books and dozens of articles to his credit when he was killed in the Second Battle of the Philippines in World War II at the age of 33. As a result, his exceptional writing about dogs and the sporting life has gone virtually unnoticed for decades. Had Vereen Bell lived, he undoubtedly would have been discussed in the same breath with other great southern sporting writers, such as Rutledge and Babcock. His best stories were about bird dogs and quail hunting, and many appeared in the leading magazines of the day, such as the Saturday Evening Post and Collier’s. Several of his bird dog stories rank among the best ever written but have not been available to read until now. Bell’s writing is one of the true hidden gems left in sporting writing. We are honored to present this special edition of the best of his work. This edition will be slipcased and bound in fine cloth. The etchings and drypoints of Marguerite Kirmse, one of the most famous dog illustrators of the century, will accompany the text of this book.
