Synopsis

HANDLING AND NURSING THE GAME COCK. A COMPREHENSIVE EXPLANATION AND INSTRUCTION ON THE MOST EFFECTIVE MEANS IN HANDLING AND NURSING GAME COCKS IN BATTLE. VARIOUS INJURIES DESCRIBED AND NURSING EXPLAINED. NATURAL ABILITY OF HANDLER EXPLAINED AS HELPFUL TO SUCCESSFUL COCKER. MANY PRECAUTIONS FOR SUCCESSFUL WINNING OF BATTLES ADVISED. By A.C. Dingwall, Ph.B. Although many "Cocking" titles are available to today's Gamefowl breeders and fanciers, very little has been written on the actual handling of fighting cocks in the pit. The author, with his many years of practical experience, wrote this book to enable his fellow cockers take care of their birds more intelligently during and after battle. It was the first in-depth book ever published on the subject. This unique historical record, published in Chicago in 1928 is extremely scarce and costly in its first edition. READ COUNTRY BOOKS has now re-published it, incorporating the original text and explanatory photographs, as part of their HISTORY OF COCKFIGHTING series. Its 80 pages contain the following detailed chapters:- Handling Preliminary to Battle. - Qualifications of a Handler. - Precautions in Handling. - Nursing for Couples. - Nursing for Rattle. - Neck Blows. - Fatigue and Exhaustion. - Blind or Blinked. - Runaways. - Broken Wings and Legs. - Throat Cut. - Brain Blows. - Random Pointers. - Worthwhile Reminders. etc. The publishers have also included the original blank battle record pages bound into the rear of the book. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are reprinting these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions. These editions are republished using the original text and artwork.
