For nearly twenty-five years, Look for the Dog has been the most used book on the phonograph collector's bookshelf. With this all-new color edition, the book is brought up-to-date with all new illustrations and greatly expanded text. Victor Talking Machines are highly prized collectibles today, and no other reference provides as much information on the company and the models they produced as Look for the Dog. The book offers detailed descriptions of each model including production quantities, standard and optional finishes, technical features, original cost and present value. It is easy and fun to read, and offers a wonderful insight into one of the great industrial companies of the early 20th century.
New information is provided on the men who contributed to the early success of the company. A fascinating tour of the huge Victor plant in its prime is reprinted from installments that appeared in the company's house organ, The Voice of the Victor.
One of the most appreciated features of the original edition was the inclusion of many original Victor Service Notes. These notes have been cleaned up and expanded for this edition. The appendix on accessories has been expanded and features all new color photographs.
Also new in this edition is the availability of a library of bonus material that is designed to enhance the enjoyment your Victrola.
