This antique book contains a detailed treatise on the breeding, bearing, and management of canaries and canary mules, including information on cage making, formation of canary societies, exhibition canaries, their points, and how to breed and exhibit them, and all other matters connected to this avocation. Written with the intent of giving the result of the author's own personal experience and observations of over a quarter of a century in a clear and terse manner, this text is perfect for both the amateur and beginner. Chapters included in this book are: 'The Original Canary—General Remarks', 'The Belgian', 'The Glasgow Don', 'The Manchester Coppy', 'The Yorkshire Fancy', 'The Cinnamon', 'The Norwich Fancy', 'The Modern Crested Norwich', 'The Lizard', 'The London Fancy', 'Any Other Varieties of Canary', et cetera. We are proud to republish this book complete with a new introduction to aviculture.
