Klappentext

Excerpt from The Indian Runner Duck Book: The One Authoritative American Book About This Marvelous Egg Machine

One of the English treatises, The Indian Runner, was writen by Jacob Thomlinson, who first knew this duck in County Cumberland. He refers to Mr. Donald's (earlier) work, and al so to a brief treatise by Mr. Henry Digby, giving credit to these men for all items not within his own, personal knowledge. Th illustrations in the Thomlinson pamphlet are from drawings by Mr. J. W. Walton. They give, says Mr. Thomlinson, a clear insight of what a true Runner should and should not be.

This shows that Mr. Walton has long been a trusted author~ ity on Runners, having intimate personal knowledge, both of cor rect type and of history.

The models from which these pictures were drawn were ia tended to be used as a guide to both old and new fanciers, to ob tain a more uniform idea of type and standard. This shows how English breeders regard Mr. Walton's drawings, and how they defer to his knowledge of the breed.
