Description:
1870 1ed Domesticated Animals Mudie FARMING Agriculture Horses Color Illustrated

Robert Mudie was a 19th-century English journalist who took a special interest in ornithology and domesticated animals. This interest developed into several books on birds and 'pet' animals including 'Domesticated Animals'. This charming first edition of Mudie's work on domesticated animals focuses mainly on farm animals – horses, swine, poultry, goats, etc. – and how they differ from their wild counterparts. This work is finely illustrated with beautiful full-color engravings.
