The original Chromolithographs have become a favorite among art collectors, art galleries and interior designers. The illustrations are by A.J. Ludlow. He was also well known as a painter of poultry and cock-fighting portraits. Works by him also appear as illustrations to the Fanciers Gazette. These Poultry portraits are also discussed in two very interesting books Farm Animal Portraits by Elspeth Moncrieff (1996), and Lewis Wright's Poultry by Dr. J. Batty (1983) .

These beautiful prints are also referenced in Fine Bird Books 1700 - 1900 By SACHEVERELL STWELL, HANDASYDE BUCHANAN and JAMES FISHER. (1990) Pages: 18,31,63,97 151 and 158. This work is considered to be the most comprehensive illustrated guide to collectible colorplate books ever published.
