I found these old black and white farm animal illustrations in the 9th edition (1875-1889) of the Encyclopedia Britannica. This thirty volume set, of which I was able to buy 27 volumes, was printed by The Werner Company in Akron, Ohio, in 1904. It includes the New American Supplement, with articles written by American authors, replacing articles on similar subjects written by different authors for the English edition. There are some beautiful maps of American cities in this edition, which I posted on a blog here.
But these farm animals are British through and through. Most say ‘bred and the property of’ then the man and the town. The Romney Marsh Breed, ewe in her second fleece, was bred by Mr. Bishop of Losenham House in Kent. Many have a signature, J. Stewart, W. Forrest, or both.
