Originally published in 1910. Entertaining anecdotes of a Yorkshire parson with a lifelong passion for cagebirds. Over the years he kept and bred many species both rare and common, including tropical birds and songbirds from the wild. His detailed notes will prove of much interest to cagebird enthusuiasts worldwide. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
