The National American Kennel Club Stud Book, volumes 1 - 17, 1879 through 1900. Green cloth with gilt spine lettering, some with decorative endpapers.

Vol. I - 1878. St. Louis: National American Kennel, 1879. 305p. + adv. List of officers, constitution and by-laws, bench show rules, field trial rules, results of 8 dog shows and 5 field trials, registrations of 6 sporting breeds Nos. 1 through 1416. This is the first lasting American pedigree record which was later incorporated into the records of the American Kennel Club and is known as Vol. I of that organization’s stud book. An important and significant work.

Vol. II - 1885. New York: Dr. Nathaniel Rowe, (”Mohawk”, pseud. 1842-1896), President, 1876 & 1877, 1885. 237p. + adv. Said to be the rarest of the set. General information similar to Vol. I plus registrations Nº 1417-3305. (24 breeds).

“Apparently the NAKC was having a difficult time since there was a period of seven years between the first and second volumes with an average of less than 300 dogs registered in each of those years. The switch to Dr. Rowe as publisher seems to indicate that the good doctor had to dig into his own purse to keep these records alive. Both Vol. II and Vol. III, published by Dr. Rowe are very rare (the AKC now seems to have only two copies of Vol. III). This seems to indicate hard times permitted only a very limited press run.” –Catalog of the Cynological Library of Herm David,1965.

Dr. Nicholas Rowe wrote in the CHICAGO FIELD, listed as “Founder” of THE AMERICAN FIELD: THE SPORTSMAN’S JOURNAL, Chicago, on the masthead of August 2, 1930.

Vols. III - 1886 and IV - 1887. New York: American Kennel Club. See American Kennel Club, The. American Kennel Club Stud Book for succeeding volumes.

Condition: Volumes have wear at spine heads and tails, tips are bumped, edges rubbed, some volumes' covers have damp staining, prior owner's bookplate on each front fixed endpaper, along with another ownership in pen, and also an embossed stamp on each title page. There is occasional notation in the margins, and many of the volumes have metal page markers attached. Overall an important set in good condition.
