Charming covers and lots of serious information in these five booklets numbered consecutively 1 to 5. This was a HUGE course. I'm not sure how many booklets it takes to compile a set, but I've seen them numbered in the high 30's. I have not, however, ever seen the first five all at once, so these are pretty cool. Each booklet is a stand alone and these cover the following topics: the poultry industry, poultry farm management, intensive poultry culture, small poultry farms; principles of poultry house construction; modern poultry houses, equipment and appliances; breeds and varieties of poultry; and the principles of mating and breeding. All booklets are clean and tightly bound, but pages have toned on the ones using high acid paper and one booklet shows water marks around the margins of a page with no wrinkling - otherwise they a quite nice set. Booklets measure 6"x9" and vary in length. All are illustrated with photographs and drawings. If you are trying to fill in a set let me know, as I do have some single issues also.
