'In the case of the novice, the help and guidance gained from his fellow breeders who are familiar with the tours of the Roller will profitably be supplemented by what he finds here, and if, in the light of the explanations and definitions given him in this work, he studies his own birds at home and those of others he may meet, it will be a lasting source of pleasure to him.' Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
