Overview

Max Geisler Bird Co. Illustrated Catalogue (Retro Peacock Edition, 1931-1932): Importers of and Dealers in Birds, Fancy Fish, Dogs, Rare Animals, Cages, Aquariums, Globes, Shells, Etc. by R Peacock

This high-quality edition is an unabridged replication of the original catalogue produced in 1931, using a rare original source copy. Each page has been expertly processed and every tiny stroke of the many etchings included in this volume has been detailed and reproduced digitally.

This book offers fascinating glimpse of the many birds and other exotic fancy which were available as pets in the 1930s. Offerings from Max Geisler Bird Co. were highlighted by their signature, trademarked lines of pet birds: the "Human Talker" parrots, and the "Living Music Box" strain of canaries. Beyond these, the company offered a menagerie of other exotic creatures available for order, including Flamingos, Marmozette Monkeys, novelty Japanese Dancing mice, chameleons, Chinese Telescope Goldfish, and even Burmese Peacocks!

Recreated using technology far superior to any available in 1931, this catalogue is printed and optimized for maximal quality and longevity in a format that captures the appearance of the original catalogue when first printed.

Whether you are a pet-lover, a collector of ephemera, a historian, or an afficiando of vintage literature, this book will be an excellent addition to your collection and enable you experience and relive what were once bygone memories of the past.
