Both of these listings seem to be the First Edition, do not see the Second Edition (issued in 1999 and 2005) listed on Amazon offhand. Hoflin is still selling the Second Edition new: The German Shepherd Book | Hoflin Dog Books

You can also search on ABE Books, Biblio and Albris.

I would like to buy this book. The 2nd edition is the newest and most updated version? If so, I'll order it from Hoflin. Sounds like a book that is essential for my library!

TY, Pioneer, I am aware of the listings of the online booksellers. I asked whether anyone here has a copy they'd like to sell.

The online store that the author, the late Susan Barwig, founded many years ago sells the book as well, if you are looking for a new copy:

Ordered! So glad you guys informed me of this GSD book and Hoflin website.

This is what I bought from Hoflin Dog Books:

Quote:

THE GERMAN SHEPHERD BOOK
Second Edition


SECOND EDITION. $79 + $10 s&h ($28 in Canada, $45 outside US/Canada). A comprehensive encyclopedia of the GSD. 720 pages in the large 8.5x11 size with over 1,200 photos, with 16 pages in full color. Covers care, breeding, training, origin, showing, the major kennels, and much more. This exciting book is a MUST for every German Shepherd lover's library. The vet sections are by Dr. Asa Mays, editor of the Merck Veterinary Manual.
Quote:

ALASKAN TRAILS - SIBERIAN DOGS

by John Douglas Tanner, Jr., 120 pages, 8.5 x 11", hardcover, $50 + $5 s&h ($15 outside US). Each books is individually signed by the author. "John has produced a work that will be tresured for years to come. Profusely illustrated with photos from the past and wonderfully narrated, this book is truly a classic." - Kathleen Kanzler "This book is the first published history encompassing the Siberian Huskies' impact during the Name Sweepstakes era and the following decade." - Natalie Norris " Alaskan Trails - Siberian Dogs is a MUST read for the novice as well as the serious fancier." - J. Robert Page

PRIMITIVE BREEDS - PERFECT DOGS
by Vladimir Beregovoy and Jill Moore Porter.
Softcover $85 + $5 s&h U.S. (+$15 Canada; +$22 Foreign). 424 pages. The modern classic of the sport of dogs.


James W. Grier, Professor of Zoology, North Dakota State University, Fargo writes:
This book takes us back to the roots of the dog's genealogical tree. Primitive breeds are distinguished from cultured breeds, to the extent that is possible, and the origins from different races of wolves are considered. The various primitive breeds themselves are then further described. All of this is done on a sound biological basis, in view of the latest scientific research, in a concise, clear, interesting, and engaging style that any dog lover can follow. In fact, if others are like me, this book will probably recruit many readers to the growing ranks of those who take another look at and become quickly fascinated by the primitive breeds!
Sally Wallis, Zande Basenjis, U. K. writes:

The 'It's NEW, I gotta have one !' brigade should be banned from buying this book. "Primitive Breeds - Perfect Dogs" by Vladimir Beregovoy & Jill Moore Porter provides a wealth of information on ancient and rare breeds which are probably unknown to, and unrecognised by, the vast number of people who I sincerely hope will find and enjoy this book.
It is not just a catalogue of canines. To genuinely interested dog-lovers and seekers after knowledge, it offers an insight into the history, original purposes, health and characteristics of many primitive breeds from the four corners of the earth. The question 'what did dogs do before they met Man' is something which always fascinates me. Within the pages of this book, Vladimir and Jill explore and answer such questions. My own Breed survived very successfully for over 6,000 years and it is only now, in this so-called civilised era, that harm may come to it. This book carries the message that dogs are dogs, they are not humans, and their needs are not as ours. We should respect them, learn from them and remember they are descended from the wilderness. They civilised, perhaps, because they saw civilisation as expedient. Their instincts for survival are untamed.
This is neither a coffee-table book nor is it something to sit down and read from cover to cover. Rather, it is a book to cherish and to visit, over and over again. And if you find you can't put it down after all, that is because it is so very readable.

Received my 3 books today. Funny, but Susan Barwig's name is nowhere to be found inside the GSD Book. I'm assuming she was given credit for the 1st edition, but there are 2 new names given credit for the 2nd edition. All 3 books seem to be worth my money. Can't wait to dive in!
