Summary

BULLDOGS AND ALL ABOUT THEM By F.Barrett Fowler A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT "Bulldogs" was originally written by Henry St. John Cooper in 1914. This new edition was revised, updated, and almost completely re-written by F. Barrett Fowler in 1925. Any edition of this book on the Bulldog is now both expensive and hard to find. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished the revised edition, using the original text and photographs, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The author was a well known and respected breeder who had much success with his show Bulldogs. He was also a prolific contributor to the dog press of that era. The book's two hundred and forty eight pages are divided into fourteen comprehensive chapters Early History of the Bulldog Comparison of the Dogs of Twenty Years Back With Those of Today. Standard Description of the Bulldog. How to Breed Choosing the Best Sort of Brood Bitch. Whelp Protecting, Foster Mothers and Weaning. The Best Class of Kennel. The Bulldog Instinct, Temper and Intelligence. House Dog and Guard Dog. Study of Pedigrees and How to Choose a Stud Dog. Ailments and Best Food. Exhibiting. Rules of the Show Ring and Judging. Early Dog Shows. Buying and Selling. Leading Bulldog Societies. Sending Dogs to Shows and Abroad. Regulations. The English Bulldog. The French Bulldog. Etc. The thirty six page chapter on the French Bulldog will prove of particular interest to some breeders. The book is well illustrated with many text drawings and numerous vintage black and white photographs of famous Bulldogs. This is a fascinating read for any Bulldog enthusiast or historian of the breed, but also contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Many of the earliest dog breed books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

    There are many tales of the Frozen City, and not all of them tell of battles between rival wizards. Often, the greatest adventures are those that pit a wizard and his trusty warband against the myriad perils found amidst the ruins of Felstad. 
     
    This new supplement for Frostgrave presents rules for playing solo and cooperative games in which the focus shifts from the feuds of wizards to exploring the city, unlocking its mysteries… and surviving what is discovered. With guidelines for scaling game difficulty, dungeon crawls, monster generation, and more, as well as ten scenarios demonstrating these options, this volume offers players everything they need to venture alone – or with allies – into Frostgrave.  
     
    Why should wizards fight amongst themselves? There is plenty of treasure for all and the Frozen City is enemy enough!
