:: 1888 PRACTICAL PHEASANT REARING
by R. J. Lloyd-Price - 198 pages. Includes a section on grouse driving. To game preservers and masters generally I would say, Go occasionally yourself and see, throughout the breeding season, that the hints comprised in the following pages are being carried out with accuracy by your servants ; more especially do I urge you in the course of each rearing season to quit your downies twice or thrice very early, after the young birds are hatched and placed in their coops in the fields, and see for yourselves that they are turned out on fine days at 5 A.M. or thereabouts an over sleepy or idle keeper being frequently the cause of incalculable mischief at this epoch.
And to the keepers I would add, follow the instructions you will find in this little book, and you succeed.
:: 1905 WILD DUCKS, HOW TO REAR AND SHOOT THEM
by Captain W. Coape Oates - 120 pages. with Illustrations.The main object of this book is to assist those who are anxious to rear wild ducks on economical lines. The Author is not without hope that the pages which it contains may even be of some use to old hands at the game.

:: 1913 DEER BREEDING FOR FINE HEADS, WITH DESCRIPTIONS OF MANY VARIETIES AND CROSS BREEDS
by Walter Winans - 136 pages. Following rough notes on a subject which, so far as I know, has never been written on, will, it is hoped, prove of use to owners of deer-forests and deer-parks.
:: 1913 FUR FARMING IN CANADA
by J. Walter Jones - 230 pages. A report commissioned by the government on fur farming. It describes a new industry for the country. The book details a variety of animals that are farmed for their fur, including raccoons, fox, skunk, and beavers. There's also plenty of information and pictures on the actual mechanics of this type of farming including setup, prices, operation, and so on. Interesting, since this is an industry that grew large but is now mostly gone.
