Do you have a favorite book about cavaliers? Or can you recommend a good book with information about cavaliers? I want to build my library. :)

If you can find a copy, the Evelyn Booth book, "All about Cavalier King Charles Spaniels" is a must own, Evelyn Booth, otherwise known as Lady Forward, was married to the late president of the CKCS parent club in the UK. Another good one is "Cavalier King Charles Spaniel's Today" by Sheila Smith of the famous Salador Kennels.

Our public libraries sold off the Lady Forwood books at 10p each or part of a 'bagful for £1' offer.

The blenheim on the cover of Shiela Smith's book was my Izzy's father.

If you want old photos, not printed in any other book, then Margaret Workman's book is for you. I dont know the actual title, but someone will.

After a quick rummage under my bed (Don't ask!!) I can reliably inform you that apart from needing to vacuum under there tomorrow, the Margaret Workman book is titled "The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel"!! :thmbsup: There is also the John Evans book too, from the Alansmere Kennel.

Could I just mention that Evelyn Booth and Lady Forwood are two different ladies ,in fact Evelyn Booth was affectionately known by older Cavalier Breeders ,as Mrs Cavalier .

Her Affix was Millstone
Lady Forwood's Affix was Eyeworth

Another great Cavalier Book to read with so much information ,is

THE CAVALIER KING CHARLES SPANIEL

There is also my absolute favorite "The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel: In Fact and Fancy" by Barbara Wilson of Laughing Cavaliers. It's available through her website.

I was looking on our bookshelves in the office; we have accumulated a lot more books than I thought! It looks like we have all the books mentioned above. Oh wait, here's one that wasn't mentioned: "Canine and Feline Theriogenology"!! Must be one Kris bought.
