This book is interesting reading, particularly the sections on Shamoe, Asil, Thai and Ga Noi. It does have non-game breeds such as longtails, long crowers and yamato (pictured in previous post), which will interest some, but IMO shouldn't be included in a book titled Oriental Gamefowl. Just my opinion though as they are still interesting breeds.
My copy was poorly bound and several pages have started to come out, although it is just over a year old.

It's widely available but I think you'll probably find that http://www.fishpond.com.au is the cheapest source. It usually has the best prices by quite a big margin.

Those displayed Ko-Shamo are pretty cute, hopefully their availability appears on the market soon.

I saw this on bookfinder and noticed that most copies were 'print on demand' published by "Authorhouse" was there another publisher - perhaps with better binding? When the book first came out in 2005??

looks good anyway.

Hi Dean. I notice that there are copies of this book for sale on Amazon, Fishpond and on ebay (from WA with free shipping).

Sorry, I can't tell if there was another publisher. Did you find that out?
