This book is about assessing the eyes of a pigeon and knowing you have a winner. Illustrated by photographs in color and black and white with explanatory text.

"Over the years I have learned to appreciate the Significance of a pigeon’s main attributes, particularly the physical characteristics of the eye. These are judged both individually and against the background of its parentage, which are by no means the same thing. It has long been my intention to explain in writing what these differences are. It is no simple matter to teach a person what to look for in a pigeon’s eye and what the various features mean. It is, moreover, a thankless job as even the most detailed description fails to make the reader understand what the writer has in mind.

That is why, for a long time, I have been planning to write a book on the eyes of a pigeon illustrated by photo’s in colour and accompanied by an explanatory text. A faithful reproduction of such photos is so expensive that, for a long time nothing came of it. Now, however, my plan has been realized. Thanks to the co-operation of the publisher and the expertise of photographer Frans Le Bastard my book has materialized and I hope that it will benefit all who wish to learn and clarify many points that, thus far, were not clear to them." -- By the John Lambrechts
