    THE title of this book does not give quite an accurate idea of the contents, for in the first part there is a good deal about fishing and things in general, and the third is a collection of “rambling ornithological notes.” In the second part, however, the author deals systematically with the pouter and other “high-class breeds,” and offers some remarks on minor varieties of fancy pigeons. Mr. Ure is a lively writer, and his facts and opinions are presented as the results of long-continued personal study and experiment.

    Our Fancy Pigeons.

    By George Ure. Cheap and Enlarged Edition. (London: Elliot Stock, 1890.)
