We are pleased to offer highly
colored chromolithographed prints from this
comprehensive work of over 600 pages on poultry and
poultry keeping that includes fine chromolithographed
illustrations of chickens, geese and ducks. Lewis Wright
produced The Illustrated Book of Poultry in 1870
& this volume was issued in 1880. This popular book
was a wonderful resource for all who wanted to keep
chickens, game birds and other poultry.
It is so illustrative of the
English bent for embracing the exotic in all spheres.
Many of these chickens contributed very few eggs indeed
to the pantry, as they were long on broodiness &
ornamentation, rather the extreme egg laying capacity so
characteristic of modern chickens. We raised many of
these showy chickens in the small English village of my
childhood, which was a veritable haven of breeders of
exotic pigeons, parrots, parakeets, not to mention
fanatical gardeners! Interestingly, it is still
possible to order many of these exotic birds from mail
order companies in the US.
The overall size of these prints
is approximately 8 1/4 inches wide by 10 1/2 inches
long, with the colors very bright & the condition
excellent. Please review the photos carefully, as they
are quite accurate.
