    [synopsis] => The Book of the Goat in its original edition was the first work devoted to the subject printed in the English language. First published in London in the 1880s, it is now a very scarce and desirable book in any early edition. We have now re-published the 1917 edition incorporating the original text and vintage photos and illustrations. This edition had been considerably revised and enlarged giving many more pages of comprehensive information on this popular animal. Three hundred and sixty six pages contain twenty nine detailed chapters: Origin and Early History of the Goat; Varieties of Goats; British Milch Goats; Continental Milch Goats; Oriental and African Goats; The Angora or "Mohair" Goat; The Cashmere or "Shawl" Goat; Cross Bred Goats; Selecting a Milch Goat; Housing; Pasturing; Stall Feeding; Breeding; Rearing Kids; Milking; Goats' Milk; Its Virtues and Utilities; Goats' Butter and Cheese; The Flesh of the Goat; Other Products; The Goat as a Foster Mother; He-Goats and Goat-Carriages; Goat Farming; Shows and Showing; The British Goat Society; Goats and the Malta Fever; Diseases, Parasites, etc; Dishorning; Preventing Growth of Horns; Breeding Hornless Goats. etc. Since this book was first published the advance in goat keeping has been most marked. The improvement in the culture of the goat as a source of milk, fleece and meat has been manifest not in England alone, but globally. This historical record will be of major interest to goat keepers worldwide, with much of its content remaining relevant even to this day.
