The wrappers are heavily worn and rubbed with losses at spine and corners. Foxing throughout, and dog-eared corners to most leaves. The folding colour frontispiece with some abrasions, including loss of a patch of colour 1" x 1/2". The second colour folding plate has creasing and a 4" tear with a yellowing adhesive tape repair on the reverse side. The folding black-and-white plate is heavily creased and has tears and losses in the vicinity of the main fold. Previous owner's signature.; 4, [2], 60, [2] pages + 2 folding colour plates (including the frontispiece) + 1 folding black-and-white plate (facing page 48); iv, (5)-88 pages + black-and-white frontispiece. Original grey printed paper wrappers. Besides the plates there are several full-page illustrations included within the pagination of the 60 pages of "The Game Fowl". The colour plates are after oil paintings by Herbert Atkinson. "The requests which have reached me for the publication in a more permanent form of the articles contributed by Mr. Proud to 'The Feathered World' have prompted this reprint of papers which have thus evidently been proved useful. The chapters have been carefully revised, and, with the addition of Illustrations and two Coloured Plates, they should certainly be of real service to the novice, and, perchance, convey a hint or two to even older fanciers. The inclusion within the same cover of an exact reprint of that old and standard work on Game Fowl, 'The Cocker,' was not arrived at without serious consideration. To bowlderise the book by cutting out all that pertained to a sport which the laws of more humane age forbid, would have been to rob the work of much of its quaintness, and of a good deal of information." - from the Preface, page 3.
