This is special re-print edition of the 1st edition of W.B. Tegetmeier's legendary book "Pigeons: Their Structure, Varieties, Habits and Management". Published in 1868, this is considered one of the most important works of the 19th Century on Domestic Pigeons. Original copies of this book are extremely rare and often sell for hundreds of dollars.

This book features insights into all the breeds of Fancy, Utility and Flying pigeons that were known in England during the second half of the 19th Century. Chapters include The Structure and General Characteristics of Pigeons, The Rock Dove, The Origin of Varieties of Pigeons, Dove Cotes and Pigeon Lofts, The English Pouter, Foreign Pouters, The English Carrier, The Dragon, Homing Birds, The Common Tumbler, The Short Faced Tumbler, The Lowtan or Ground Tumblers of India - House Tumblers, The Barb, The Owl, The Turbit, The Jacobine, The Fantail, The Trumpeter and the Laugher, Nuns, Helmets and Spots, The Archangel, German Toys, The Finnikin, Smiter and Turner, The Lace, or Silky and Frillback Pigeons, The Runt and others.

This is one of the most authorative books of its kind and still pertinent to pigeon fanciers nearly 150 years later. Lavishly illustrated with rare period artwork.

Note: This edition is a perfect facsimile of the original edition and is not set in a modern typeface. As a result, some type characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections or minor shadows in the page background.
