This is the story of Cockfighting and how it is practised in certain parts of the world where it is still legal. In Britain (where this book was published) it has been a forbidden sport for more than 150 years, although it is said that in country parts, ithat it ceased much later than that time. Many people keep game fowl purely for interest and this book is reissued in the hope that many of the sections of the book relating to the history, feeding, conditioning and other aspects of keping these birds will be of great interest. This is a well researched history into the sport of Cockfighting. Reprint of 1949 US book with black and white photos. Hardcover with 211 pages.
