Raising Rabbits For Profit #1 1970 The Kremers Press Fair Lawn NJ

Very nice smaller booklet, 7 by 5 inches, blue with black lettering. Rabbit or Bunny husbandry. Strangely appears with rippled interior on a few pages but not covers. Not sure why....but does not effect the great photos and illustrations of Rabbit fun.

Some contents are * The Beginning *  Proper Housing  * Feeding * Breeding * Pedigrees and Records * Exhibiting * Cooking Domestic Rabbits  * Prevention of Disease * Pointers Towards Success etc.

47 pages.

Interesting piece that is again, in good condition with only page rippling. See photos. The piece smells fresh and looks clean.
