pigeons: Their Structure, Varieties, Habits, and Management


This is a presumed 1st edition H/Bk copy of “Pigeons: Their Structure, Varieties, Habits, and Management” by W. B. Tegetmeier and published by George Routledge in around 1870 with coloured representations of the different varities drawn from life by Harrison Weir. The book has 190 pages and a further 2 pages advertising other books for sale by Routledge. Their are 16 pages of coloured engravings and a further 16 pages of engravings on wood. There is some foxing to the endpapers but the contents are fine and there is a previous owners name and address on the front end paper but there are no other marks or inscriptions in the book. The book is bound in green cloth with red leather spine and the titles in gold. There has been some tape at the top of the spine which is chipped as is the bottom and the corners are a little bumped. A nice copy of a scarce book. If you have any questions about the book or its content please email me.
