The Dog: Man's Best Friend. A Book For All Dog Lovers
THE DOG: MAN'S BEST FRIEND- A BOOK FOR ALL DOG LOVERS. By Captain A.H. Trapman A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT. Originally published in 1929, this extremely scarce early work on the dog is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished it, using the original text and illustrations, as part of their History of the Dog series. This is a fascinating and absorbing title which will appeal to all true dog lovers. It is not just a collection of dog stories, but an attempt to present a synopsis of all that has been believed, thought, and written about man's best friend throughout the ages and to deduce from it some knowledge of the dog's psychology and mental processes. Captain Trapman has written one of the most entertaining and instructive contributions to dog literature ever published. He writes with authority, and yet with charm, of the link between dog and man that exists between man and no other creature. 'To the memory of all dogs who have loved man, and to all men who have loved a dog, this study of man's best friend is dedicated." -- Author. The book consists of over three hundred pages, plus thirty pages of illustrations, including many etchings by the famous artist Diana Thorne: Origin of the Dog. - Adown the Ages. - The Dog in History and Literature. - Racial Characteristics. - Great Men and their Dogs. - Some Great Dogs. - Spirituality of the Dog. - Supernatural Instincts. - Morality and Conscience. - Sense of Scent. - Hearing, Sight and Memory. - Reasoning Power. - Duty and Honour. - Sense of Humour, Justice, and Protection. - Relations with other Animals. - Breeds and Breeding. - Utility Dogs in General. - War Dogs. - Training and Management. - Health and Sickness. - Dogs Primer of the English Language. - Origins and Uses of the Various Breeds. - Function of Bench Shows.

The Book Of British Butterflies: A Practical Manual For Collectors And Naturalists
The Book Of British Butterflies: A Practical Manual For Collectors And Naturalists, BY W. J. LUCAS. PREFACE. From the many beautiful objects which the student of Nature finds awaiting his attention, the Butterflies will be allowed by most to take a very prominent place, adding as they do another to the many charms of the flower-decked summer-fields. To assist the large and ever-increasing body of naturalists who make Butterflies their pursuit, has been written. Though primarily intended for beginners it is not a book for mere collectors only, but one that will assist, it is hoped, those who take up the subject in the true entmological spirit a spirit that seems to be on the increase at the present day-one that speedily transforms the collector into an observing and experimental entomologist. With this object in view, while a popular style has avoided, the subject has been treated with sufficient fulness, it is hoped, to enable anyone wishing to do so, to work at these insects in all stages of their life-history. It might be thought perhaps that the Butterflies are thoroughly worked out dread but this is quite a mistake, and the Iover of this grand division of lepidopterous insects will find that, as in all other cases, the further he goes the more there is to learn. Of the earlier life-history of many species we have very indefinite and unsatisfactory knowledge-of some, indeed, we know scarcely anything, even of the best known our knowledge is none too perfect.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ... (6) Columns for Discount on Purchases and Discount on Notes on the same side of the Cash Book; (c) Columns for Discount on Sales and Cash Sales on the debit side of the Cash Book; (d) Departmental columns in the Sales Book and in the Purchase Book. Controlling Accounts.--The addition of special columns in books of original entry makes possible the keeping of Controlling Accounts. The most common examples of such accounts are Accounts Receivable account and Accounts Payable account. These summary accounts, respectively, displace individual customers' and creditors' accounts in the Ledger. The customers' accounts are then segregated in another book called the Sales Ledger or Customers' Ledger, while the creditors' accounts are kept in the Purchase or Creditors' Ledger. The original Ledger, now much reduced in size, is called the General Ledger. The Trial Balance now refers to the accounts in the General Ledger. It is evident that the task of taking a Trial Balance is greatly simplified because so many fewer accounts are involved. A Schedule of Accounts Receivable is then prepared, consisting of the balances found in the Sales Ledger, and its total must agree with the balance of the Accounts Receivable account shown in the Trial Balance. A similar Schedule of Accounts Payable, made up of all the balances in the Purchase Ledger, is prepared, and it must agree with the balance of the Accounts Payable account of the General Ledger." The Balance Sheet.--In the more elementary part of the text, the student learned how to prepare a Statement of Assets and Liabilities for the purpose of disclosing the net capital of an enterprise. In the present chapter he was shown how to prepare a similar statement, the Balance Sheet. For all practical...

The Indiana Weed Book
PREFACE. THE Author of this very practical treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. He does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. Everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible. The writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. This section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes. The Author need hardly say that any suggestions addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with consideration in a future edition. We do not pretend to write or enlarge upon a new subject. Much has been said and written-and well said and written too on the art of fishing but loch-fishing has been rather looked upon as a second-rate performance, and to dispel this idea is one of the objects for which this present treatise has been written. Far be it from us to say anything against fishing, lawfully practised in any form but many pent up in our large towns will bear us out when me say that, on the whole, a days loch-fishing is the most convenient. One great matter is, that the loch-fisher is depend- ent on nothing but enough wind to curl the water, -and on a large loch it is very seldom that a dead calm prevails all day, -and can make his arrangements for a day, weeks beforehand whereas the stream- fisher is dependent for a good take on the state of the water and however pleasant and easy it may be for one living near the banks of a good trout stream or river, it is quite another matter to arrange for a days river-fishing, if one is looking forward to a holiday at a date some weeks ahead. Providence may favour the expectant angler with a good day, and the water in order but experience has taught most of us that the good days are in the minority, and that, as is the case with our rapid running streams, -such as many of our northern streams are, -the water is either too large or too small, unless, as previously remarked, you live near at hand, and can catch it at its best. A common belief in regard to loch-fishing is, that the tyro and the experienced angler have nearly the same chance in fishing, -the one from the stern and the other from the bow of the same boat. Of all the absurd beliefs as to loch-fishing, this is one of the most absurd. Try it. Give the tyro either end of the boat he likes give him a cast of ally flies he may fancy, or even a cast similar to those which a crack may be using and if he catches one for every three the other has, he may consider himself very lucky. Of course there are lochs where the fish are not abundant, and a beginner may come across as many as an older fisher but we speak of lochs where there are fish to be caught, and where each has a fair chance. Again, it is said that the boatman has as much to do with catching trout in a loch as the angler. Well, we dont deny that. In an untried loch it is necessary to have the guidance of a good boatman but the same argument holds good as to stream-fishing...

The John Muir Trail: Through the Californian Sierra Nevada
This is a guidebook for walking the John Muir Trail (JMT) - North America's best known mid-distance walking trail. It runs for 216 miles through the high Sierra Nevada mountains of California, from Yosemite Valley to the summit of Mount Whitney (14,496ft), the highest peak in the US outside Alaska. The walking trail (named after the great 19th-century Scottish naturalist John Muir) is entirely through the unspoilt wilderness of the American West and passes through three national parks: Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. The John Muir Trail is one of the world's most spectacular treks, and thorough planning is required to walk it successfully. All you need to know to plan and prepare for your trip is contained within this guidebook, from obtaining trekking permits to buying trek food and forwarding food caches along the trail. Abundant advice is given on such topics as dealing with inquisitive bears, coping with altitude, negotiating river crossings, as well as tips on booking transport to and from the trailheads and on what equipment to take. In addition there is a detailed description of the flora and fauna of this remarkable region.

George Bentham (1800-84) was one of Britain's most influential botanists, whose own collection of plant specimens numbered more than 100,000. Although he donated his herbarium to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in 1854, he continued to make significant contributions to the field, including this exhaustive, seven-volume work detailing the plant life of Australia, which was published from 1863 to 1878. It was part of a series of works commissioned by the British government to document the flora in its colonies. Using the extensive numbers of specimens at Kew - and with the help of Ferdinand Mueller (1825-96), a German botanist in Australia - Bentham was able to compile descriptions of more than 8,000 species of Australian plants, making these volumes the first completed compendium of the flora of any large continental area. Volume 6, published in 1873, describes 20 orders of flora in the classes dicotyledon and monocotyledon.

Richard Owen F.R.S. (1804-92) was a controversial and influential palaeontologist and anatomist. Owen studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh and at London's St Bartholomew's Hospital. He grew interested in anatomical research, and after qualifying he became assistant conservator in the museum of the Royal College of Surgeons, and then superintendent of natural history in the British Museum. He quickly became an authority on comparative anatomy and palaeontology, coining the term 'dinosaur' and founding the Natural History Museum. He was also a fierce critic of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, and engaged in a long and bitter argument with Darwin's 'Bulldog', Thomas Huxley. Published in 1868, this is the third book in a highly illustrated three-volume set that comprises a thorough overview of vertebrate anatomy. This volume completes the analysis of mammalian anatomy and includes a chapter of general conclusions.
