Excerpt from Sheep: Domestic Breeds and Their Treatment Early in the present century, when interest in the breeding of live stock became more general than it had previously been, the demand for information on the subject was supplied by Messrs. David Low, Wm. Youatt, W. C. L. Martin, and others. The works of Low and Youatt were large and expensive; those of Martin were cheap and popular. Martin's little books passed through many editions, and, from time to time, were revised and modernised. They form the foundation of the present "Popular Live Stock Series"; but in 1893 they were so thoroughly overhauled that very little of the writing of the original author remains. Consequently his name has not been retained on the title page of "Cattle" and "Sheep," as the books have been rendered practically new. They are now published in the belief that, in view of the increased importance of live stock in the farm economy of the United Kingdom, they will be helpful in instructing beginners as to the characteristics and capabilities of the various improved breeds and in giving plain hints as to management and diseases; while they will also serve as introductions to the more extended studies of the subject that are to be found in the "Live Stock Hand Books," brought out by the same publishers.
