Note: Published in Paris in 1824 (240 pp and 25 plates plus frontispiece) this work covers in detail 122 breeds of pigeons. Approximately 100 copies were printed, all in black and white. The black and white plates were hand-colored in most copies because of the higher price which could be charged. However, a few copies were left uncolored so that they could be sold less expensively. Some books had the page edges trimmed while others were left with deckled edges. To sum up, there were four variations: colored versions with deckled edges, colored with trimmed edges, black and white deckled, black and white trimmed. Of the books remaining today, the most rare is the deckled edge uncolored version. This work would not have come into existence save for the Duchess du Berry, Marie-Caroline de Bourbon-Sicile. For more than 40 years, M.M. Boitard managed the poultry holdings for the widowed Duchess and she provided the financing for this book. It was written by Boitard in collaboration with Corbie Den, a famed naturalist of the period.
