The Philadelphia Bird Food Company’s Book of Cage Birds.
Keeping your birds healthy and in constant song is the aim of this book or is it? From our perspective, the bird cages illustrated within and offered for sale seem to be the underlying motive. Overall, part instruction, part guide book, part salesmanship. One plate in color, well-illustrated; a birds-eye view of the selling of avian creatures in 1912.
