A Practical Treatise on Breeding, Rearing and Fattening of All Kinds of Domestic Poultry by Bonington Moubray (£43.00)Publisher: Sherwood Neeley & Jones — 1822Binding: Hardback Condition: Poor. A binding copy. Spine strip missing. Boards badly soiled and faded with upper board detached. Some gathers becoming loose although text more than acceptable.Description: A Practical Treatise on Breeding, Rearing and Fattening All Kinds of Domestic Poultry, Pheasants, Pigeons and Rabbits including an interesting account of the Egyptian Method of hatching eggs by artificial heat, with the author's experiments thereon. Fourth Edition; with additions, On The Breeding, Feeding, and Management of Swine - on Milch Cows for the Family Dairy - and on Bees. From Memoranda made during Forty Years' Practice. This edition seems to differ from most currently on offer in both edition and content. None seem to mention the Egyptian Method for example. The pagination seems correct at 312pp with the printers mark to the bottom of that page, and matches the index at the front. Of course, most other editions currently offered are 360+pp 312pp. Size: 7½" x 5½"

The Junket Man by Christopher Matthew (£4.00)Publisher: Arrow — 1983Binding: Paperback Condition: Good. An acceptable reading copy with clear signs of previous ownership and shelf wear.Description: Roger Noakes liked the sound of the Inaugural Weekend at Hatching Park. Drinks on the terrace, perhaps a spot of mah-jong and civilised conversation with Sir George and Lady Fox-Bronzing - it all sounded just his sort of junket.But then Roger had not reckoned with the most unlikely gaggle of drunken, lascivious travel writers ever to gather at a stately home. Or that Lady Fox-Bronzing had decided that the man to sire a son and heir for the threatened Fox-Bronzing dynasty was one Roger Noakes.Tags: MATTHEW, Christopher
