This is special re-print edition of the 1st edition of the Rev. J. Lucas' legendary book "The Pleasures of a Pigeon Fancier". Published in 1887, this is considered one of the most important works of the 19th Century on Domestic Pigeons. Original copies of this book are extremely rare and often sell for hundreds of dollars.

This book features insights into what it takes to become a successful pigeon fancier, as well as details on the Reverend's favorite pigeon breed, the English Short Face Tumbler. Included are separate sections on the Almond Tumbler, the Baldhead Tumbler and the Beard Tumbler, providing one of the most valuable insights into the history of Tumbler Pigeons in England during the 19th Century.

One of the only books of its kind.

Note: This edition is a perfect facsimile of the original edition and is not set in a modern typeface. As a result, some type characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections or minor shadows in the page background.
