The Horse and Modern Veterinary Practice; Dogs, Cattle, Sheep, Pigs, and Poultry; Their Treatment in Health and Disease.
SKEAVINGTON, George; SHERER, John
From the title page: "With practical information on all that relates to modern farming, gardening, shooting, angling, etc., etc. Illustrated with numerous engravings showing the anatomy of the horse; his teeth, mode of shoeing; sporting scenes, etc.; by Sir. E. Landseer, B.A.; A. Cooper, B. A.; B Herring, B. A., Etc." Subscription book on veterinary medicine, targeting landowners and farmers sold in 20 separate semimonthly parts, bound together by a previous owner in Nov. 18, 1926 as per an inscription on the cover of part 1. This collection ends mid-sentence on an article about the water buffalo in parts "19&20" issued as a single volume. It suggests that the volumes may have ran to a 21st issues since many end mid-sentence and begin in the next issue where the sentence left off.
