I should be receiving the version I ordered from Amazon this week. Did I get the wrong one? Mine only cost like $75.
The quoted text came from this link:In the first decade of 1900, Von Stephanitz wrote a book (in German) about his loyal hard working dogs called The German Shepherd in Word and Picture, in which he documents the above heritage and pleas to the breeders not "to add more wolf blood" into his dogs as he had ALREADY found the IDEAL combination. In 1923, an American version was translated VERBATIM. Not many copies were printed and few still exist. [email protected] has a pricey (about $350) original and more may be found by doing rare book searches. In 1932, an 8th Enlarged and "Revised" (read sanitized) version was financed by English speaking "interests." All references to the positive wolf heritage were removed and most GSD fanciers have been denying RECENT wolf heritage ever since.
