Cat Breeds of the World: A Complete Illustrated Encyclopedia
"In his latest book, Cat Breeds of the World, Desmond Morris presents the ultimate reference book on domestic cat breeds. Here are details of every cat breed in the world, from the long-established to the exotic newcomers, complemented by nearly 100 full-color photographs taken by some of the world's leading feline photographers." "Even the greatest cat lover will be intrigued by Morris's mastery of historical information concerning cats and delighted by his entertaining accounts of the often conflicting theories of the obscure origins of the oldest breeds. He also provides the latest facts on experimental breeds and the controversies surrounding them. Supplementing the information about each cat breed are sections on coat colors and patterns, feline anatomy, and terminology."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
