Pigeon Racing - D. L. Campbell

W. & G. Foyle, 1965, Hardback ..
Condition: Very Good. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. Revised Edition. [First Edition: 1951] From the preface: “At one time, the racing pigeon was commonly termed the ‘poor man’s racehorse’. During the last quarter century however, the sport has gained such widespread popularity among all classes of people, that the keeping of racing pigeons is no longer the prerogative of the ‘poor’ man. In Great Britain alone, there are some 100,000 racing pigeon enthusiasts. For those interested in the breeding of pigeons, this book sets out the broad basis on which the novice can, with enthusiasm allied to personal observation and a little common sense, soon play a successful part in what is probably the world’s most intriguing — and often profitable — live-stock hobby.”
