Collie Books & Magazines!

A Bibliography of non-fiction titles

Compiled by Gayle Kaye updated 05-17-2012

The beautiful cover of the Hugh Dalziel book "The Collie" (1904)

There is a wealth of reading material available on the Collie breed. Below is a bibliography of known books on the Collie (non-fiction). Subjects range from breed history and development, bloodlines, breed pictorial studies, breed critiques, to care, training and feeding. They are an invaluable asset to any Collie owner's arsenal of information. Many of these books are over 100 years old and out of print, but many are still available. The older ones can be difficult to locate, but with perseverance and luck-- they are well worth the cost and effort! If you see any books missing, please let me know the title and other pertinent information. Also included is a complete list of all known Collie magazines.

A recent addition to my collection, this is probably the scarcest Collie book ever printed. I was not even sure of its true existence because I have never known one single person who owned a copy nor has anyone ever seen a copy. This includes old time breed experts in Britain. All I had to go on was an obscure ad in an old "Collie Folio", indicating the book was "ready shortly". I was never sure it actually went to print. After having this book on my want list for 35+ years, I was recently contacted by a book dealer in England. He found this copy at a charity shop in Nottingham and gave me first offer of refusal. Unfortunately it is missing some pages and part of the cover......nonetheless, I am thrilled to add this very scarce book to my collection. I am still seeking an intact copy!
