MövchenTauben International:  Owls Frills Turbits: Werner Assmus
Click for larger image This is a very nice German language book about the history (and more) of Turbits and Owls up through 1979 when the book was published. Even if one can't read German, the pictures tell a very solid story about the breed. Many of the later photographs are in printed in color, but since many of the older photographs were taken in black and white that is the way they are here.

This is a very nice small frame book, just a little over 5x7 providing information of the breeds and how the sport is practiced in the Netherlands. There are a few color photographs, but the majority are in black and white. There is a very good picture of the trap style used there, which is clear enough to copy should one so desire.

Taschenatlas: Horst Schmid & Rudi Proll
cover click for larger image click for larger image This is a smaller version of the German Lexicon (Encyclopedia) of pigeons. It is 192 pages of great color photographs, and very well indexed. That makes it, even for those of us that can't read German, a very valuable tool. It is laid out very similar to Levi's classics, Encyclopedia of Pigeons. It also has a very extensive bibliography of German works and a few others such as Ludlow’s but oddly enough, Levi's classic on which this appears to be modeled is not among them. A very nicely published book, and a bargain at twice the price.
$25 mint. 9
Lexikon der Tauben: Hans-Joachim Schille
Click for larger image
Germany is probably the most prolific country when it comes to text about pigeons. There are so many great German pigeon books it is near impossible to name them all. Some new, some old. This book is as the title says a dictionary of pigeons and is very much like Levi's Encyclopedia of Pigeon Breeds in layout style. It is nearly completely in color with a short description of the breed, in German of course, with a great photo for the breeds covered. And these are not just photos taken inside judging cages. We get photos from the top German Photographers Josef Wolters, and Thomas Hellmann. I am not sure of the publication date, but it is a fairly recent work.

Reusen, Kip, Wrat - Vleesch en Seldsame Duiven Rassen; C.A.M. Spruijt

This book has many black and white photographs and a few colored drawings explaining the larger breeds, which this book covers.. A rather unusual find.
