WRIGHT, Lewis. The Illustrated Book of Poultry With Practical Schedulesfor Judging, Constructed from Actual Analysis of the Best Modern Decisions,... ; Cassell & Company, Revised Edition 1890. Royal 4to. Original green cloth, blocked in gilt and black with the gilt title on the. Upper cover surmounted by a polychrome roundel containing the head of a cockerel, the title itself surmounting a gilt vignette of a cock and a hen, spine similarly blocked in gilt and black, all edges thickly gilt; viii + 591pp.; with 50 superb high-tone chromolithographs by J.W. Ludlow of different poultry breeds in a landscape, processed by Vincent Brooks, Day & Son, and copious wood-engraved plates and illustrations throughout; a superb copy with only very light rubbing externally and infinitesimal spotting to outer margins. New edition with five prints not found in earlier editions. This can be seen as the pinnacle of chromolithographic illustration, with the rich gloss to these splendid plates being rarely found again.

A favorite of interior designers, these spectacular plates are all too often found on walls, rather than alongside the superb individual anecdotes and information to be found here. This is a rare opportunity to buy one of the best copies I have seen of this book - to be kept in one piece, in all its glory.
