The Boy Fancier: being a Complete Manual of all Matters Appertaining to Domestic Pets Suitable for the Youthful Fancier

Abstract

FROM his professional training as a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, the author of this well-illustrated volume is thoroughly qualified to give sound and trustworthy information with regard to the general care, feeding, and treatment in illness of animals kept as pets, or, like poultry and goats, reared for profit. And although the work before us is primarily intended for the benefit of young persons, it will be found equally valuable for those of more mature age, who, for purposes of pleasure or profit—or both combined—devote their attention to the keeping and rearing of dogs, cats, goats, guinea-pigs, rabbits, squirrels, poultry, pigeons, cage-birds, &c.

The Boy Fancier: being a Complete Manual of all Matters Appertaining to Domestic Pets Suitable for the Youthful Fancier.

By F. T. Barton. Pp. xx + 435. (London: George Routledge and Sons, Ltd.; New York: E. P. Dutton and Co., n.d.) Price 5s.
