This special re-print edition of "The Croad Langshan" offers insight into this famous breed of poultry: the Croad Langshan. The first recorded imports of this poultry breed came from the Langshan ('Wolf Mountain') area in the outskirts of Nantong, just north of the lower reaches of the Yangtse-Kiang River in China) in 1872 and were undertaken by Major F.T. Croad who imported the breed into Britain. Major Croad's niece, Miss A. C. Croad, has been credited with establishing the breed in Britain. The Croad Langshan Club was formed in Britain in 1904. The name 'Croad' distinguishes the original type of Langshan Fowl, as imported by Major Croad.

Topics include History of the Langshan Fowl, Judging Croad Langshans, The Croad Langshan From the Utility Side, Breeding For Exhibition, What is Laying Type? and much more. Also included are numerous advertisements from Langshan breeders of a century ago. The only book of its kind.
