One of the earliest and scarcest of English pigeon books, preceded only by the original issue of John Moore's Columbarium in 1735, now more or less impossible to find. This book is essentially a re-issue of that by an anonymous pigeon fancier with some textual amendments especially as to the Almond Tumbler and with the addition of illustrations. With frontis and 12 other very nice copper engraved plates. Missing the plate of the Black Mottled Tumbler which Williams says was never considered quite satisfactory and is often found missing in later issues, so presumably removed by the publisher. Bound in contemporary half red calf, marbled boards. Covers worn and scuffed but solid. Owner's inscription on title page. A solid copy of a pigeon rarity. Williams p.14, Casey Wood P. 198.
