ORHAN DÜZGÜNES, (Turkish High Institute of Agriculture, Zootechnics Chief Assistant), (1919-1985?).

Ali Riza Incealemdaroglu Basimevi, Zonguldak, 1946.

Paperback. Demy 8vo. (22 x 14 cm). In Turkish. 111, [2] p., 6 numerous b/w plates and 1 plan. A few important works were written on zoology, and in particular horse breeding in the early Republic of Turkey. These books were generally publications that argued that Turkish peasants should be a pioneer in horse breeding in the Anatolian aspect and that the government should support it in economic and social terms. This book was written extensively by Düzgünes, who studied zoology in the USA between 1950-1957. He took lessons from the American professors of his period (M. Lerner, J. Lush et al.) And published his research studies in the field of Poultry Breeding in the A-class science journal (American Poultry Science). Düzgünes, the author of books in the field of Statistics, Genetics, and Animal Breeding, translated the books of his professors in the USA into Turkish and introduced many technical terms related to his subject to Turkish. This book includes six black and white plates showing Turkish horse species and internal organs with a plan showing how to put four mares and a foal in the barn. Very scarce. Not in OCLC.; Turkish National Library 000029336.
