Vereen Bell was a promising young author with three books and dozens of articles to his credit when he was killed 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. The title story of this collection, “Brag Dog”, is virtually the only story that has been in print over the last 50 years in dog anthology collections. This edition will be slipcased and bound in fine cloth. The etchings and pencil drawings of Marguerite Kirmse, one of the most famous dog illustrators of the century, will accompany the test of this books.
