Historical Artwork and Pictures
The pictures which follow are taken from rare and valuable texts rarely seen these days. The pictures appear slightly skewed as the books are much too valuable to press flat against a scanner.

"The New Book of Poultry" c1902 which was illustrated by J.W. Ludlow
The above picture was taken fromthe International Library of Technology's
"Standard Bred Poultry - Vol II" c1912 which was illustrated by Edwin Megargee
This fine pair of Faverolles was bred and exhibited
by Mr. F. Chaloner-Smith, Carrickmines, co. Dublin.

The text on the female reads: "A winner of many prizes"
These photographs were taken from J.T. Brown's "The Encyclopaedia of Poultry" c1909
Charles L. Stiles published a set of 70 poultry electrotypes.
His flyer was titled "Ideal Poultry Cuts"
The artist sold the electrotypes to the poultry breeder so the local printer
could produce letterhead, envelopes, etc. with pictures of the breed.
The sales flyer has no date on it, though it was accompanied by
correspondence dated March 20, 1923.
The July 1935 issue, central edition, of the American Poultry Journal featured Faverolles.
