Hi there,

maybe there is an US citizen in this forum, who is ready to report me, whether he can see the content of the book.
The access outside USA is restricted.
For example, I would like to know the quality of the digitalisation and how many pages can be seen.

Yes, I could access it. The print was in a gothic type font. Readable. Many sections. Not English.

The quality is fine. There are 32 sections (242 pgs). True the original is in German gothic type set... so I simply cut/paste the 1st section as an example into Word thus changing the type to standard type-- then I cut and paste into my 'World Lingo' translator program. Please note sample below:
Der Hühnerstall.
Wer Hühner halten will, und zwar mehrere verschiedene Stämme, und
es steht ihm großes Terrain zur Verfügung, der thut am besten, den Ställen
gleich einen großen eingefriedigten tauf- oder Weideplatz beizugeben. Es ist
selbstverständlich, daß ein jeder Stamm einen solchen Olatz für sich haben
muß, getrennt von den anderen durch tatten- oder Drahteinzäunung. Ie
größer der taufplatz ist, desto weniger entbehren die Thiere die gänzliche
Freiheit. Die Kosten der Einfriedigungen, die freilich nicht geringe sind,
werden jedoch dadurch eingebracht, daß die Thiere bei großem tauf gesün-
der bleiben und reichlicher Eier legen als solche, welchen nur ein kleiner
Raum zur Vewegung bleibt.
Der Stall selbst kann von Stein oder Holz gebaut werden, erstere Vau-
art, weil wärmer, ist jedoch vorzuziehen. Die Größe des Stalles muß der
Zahl der Hühner, welche darin wohnen sollen, angemessen sein, und von
einer Höhe, daß ein Mann bequem darin stehen kann. Dann muß der
Stall luftig sein, gut ventilirt werden können durch zwei in höchster Höhe
gegenüber liegende Fenster, die den Tag über geöffnet werden müssen, weil
sich sonst bei warmer Witterung leicht Ungeziefer, sogenannte Hühnerläuse,
in den Stall einnisten. Eine Hauptsache ist, daß der Stall dicht ist, denn
Zug können die Hühner durchaus nicht vertragen. Mit einem Worte, das
Hühnerhaus muß so eingerichtet sein, daß die Thiere sich auch bei schlechtem

The chicken house.
Who wants to hold chickens, several different trunks, and
large terrain is to it at the disposal, thut best to add
to the stables directly a large eingefriedigten baptizing or pasture place. It is
naturally that each trunk must have such Olatz for
itself, separately from the others through tatten or wire fence. IE
the baptizing place is larger, misses the Thiere the less the complete
liberty. The costs of the Einfriedigungen, which are certainly not small,
are brought in however by the fact that the Thiere with large baptize gesün
that remain and plentiful eggs to put as such, which remains only
a small area to the Vewegung.
The stable can be built by stone or wood, first Vau
kind, because warmer, to prefer is however. The size of the stable must be
appropriate the number of the chickens, which are to live in it, and by
a height that a man can stand comfortably in it. Then the stable
must be airy, well ventilate can by two in highest height
opposite lying windows, which must be opened the day over, because
otherwise in warm weather easily vermin, so-called chicken lice in-sneezed themselves
, into the stable. A main thing is that the stable is close, because
the chickens cannot at all stand course. With a word,
the chicken house must be so furnished that the Thiere itself also with bad

Hope this was helpful smile

Thank You, for Your responses!
Strange, the book should have 282 pages, excluding 40 plates. Well, I'm looking for a digitalized version of this book, but including the 40 plates. Can You see the plates?

Redcap- I can not say for certain at this point, as to the number of pages or plates contained in the original work. The digitized version was done by Google and since there is no table of content or plate (litho) listing...I must go through each digitized page one by one. Yes-very time consuming. However, having found some wonderful colour & B/W litho (which can be saved to my laptop...very good resolution)- I've decided to continue with your request in a systematic way. It will take some time- so if patience is one of your virtues...then I'll be able to deliver the 'goods'. I also think it might be best if I could send the litho (email attachment) to a private email address. I really don't know how to post pixs on the forum- and certainly you might like to post them to the members as you see appropriate. If agreeable, please send a PM and we'll get started with the transfer. smile

...NO-unfortunately frown

There are 3 options for the viewing of this digitized book. 1.image 2.text 3.PDF-- However the PDF option allows for only 1 pg @ a time- Perhaps their are other Coop members that can help you out. smile

I made an enquiry to Cornell University Digital Library Services.
There I was referred to Kirtasbooks. They try to get a digitalized version from New York Public Library. Wish me good luck. ;-)

Good Luck- my friend! I have been working on the digitalized version here at my farm...(slow going at best)- I have managed to locate and download 35 of the 40 listed plates. I did find a table of listed plates which is helpful- but the page numbers of the original book do not sync with the digital version...a bit like trying to catch a run-away chicken with a net. *But well worth the time...the colour lithos are remarkable. smile
