Haven't posted here in what seems like forever, but about ten days ago, I volunteered to catalog a dear friend’s doggy/horsey library, which I knew was quite extensive and probably had some real gems in it! Clicking along fairly quickly with a book cataloging program I purchased, I came upon a real treasure – actually treasureS!

Contained in the box I received day before yesterday were four (count ‘em – FOUR) copies of A.F. Hochwalt’s “The Modern Setter” – there’s one copy of the 1919 first edition, a copy of the 1923 “Second Edition, Revised and Enlarged”, and two copies of the 1935 “A Companion Volume to the 1923 Edition – with complete Index for Both Volumes.” I had heard all my setter life about Mr. Hochwalt and his books, but this was the first time I’ve had an opportunity to get my hands on them.

Of course, all cataloging work stopped right then and there, and I proceeded to read, and read, and read. And then the thought occurred to me that others would surely be interested in what is contained in the First Edition about the Irish Setter – two chapters: Early American History and Current History. Of course, at the time of publication “current” was 1919!!!!

So, since I’m a pretty fast typist, if I do say so myself, I started typing those Irish chapters into a Word document. They amount to 24 pages, including scanned photographs.

The book is long out of copyright, so I am offering to share the chapters that I have available. If your server can handle an attachment of that length, just send me your email address and I’ll be happy to share! Frankly, it’s a must-read for anyone with an interest in the history of our breed.
