Cocking Science: The Breeding, Rearing, Conditioning and Fighting of Game Fowl from a Scientific Point of View
Henrietta, NY: Feathered Warrior, 1939. 82 pages. 5-1/2 by 8 inches. A beginner's guide, written pseudonymously. Illustrated with black-and-white photo reproductions. ISBN: 281AIB1040623.
First edition (first printing). A near fine copy in stapled illustrated wrappers (paperback). Minor wear.
We are often asked if this is an original 1939 copy and are the staples rusty. The answer is that the staples are not rusty. However, that's not really an indicator. This copy came from a box of the book that surfaced some time ago - we acquired the last 10 or so copies 5 years ago from a retiring bookseller who had had them in storage for 25 years or more.
The materials used in the book are entirely consistent with the 1930s. The type is very clean and doesn't show evidence of having been photographed or photocopies, which is how a facsimile would be made. Many reprints have later dates and somewhat different covers. So I would say that someone could have reset the type in the 1950s and printed copies with a false 1939 date, but this definitely isn't a book printed in the 1960s or later using modern photo offset lithography.Book ID: 205383More details Price: $40.00
