"The Author of this book, Mr W. Lewis Renwick, who is the leading authority on the Whippet, has given us here a new angle on the evolution of this popular breed, which is bound to interest all dog lovers. It is also felt certain that his experience, which is gained by over fifty years as Breeder, Exhibitor and Judge, will be of great help to the novice and of interest to all who keep dogs and especially to those who have dogs of the Coursing Breeds.
