This most commendable book on Bantams was first published in the early 1920s. The author was an expert poultry keeper with Fancy Bantams being his specialty. He was well known and respected on the show circuit with many important wins to his credit. The book was written as much for the benefit of the backyard poultry keeper as well as assisting the show bantam enthusiast. Although written primarily for the early 20th century reader, virtually all of the book's contents remain relevant today. The information on rarer Bantam breeds will be especially useful to modern breeders.
