  • Turkeys were one of the many astonishing delights the Americas sent back to Europe after contact. In this book, art historian Sabine Eiche has assembled a delightful collection of art to illustrate the turkey’s adventures in Europe. The idea for Presenting the Turkey came to the author by reading a letter dated in 1531, written by an agent of Duke Francesco Maria della Rovere of Urbino, who recounted having seen something very odd: "birds stranger than anything an artist would ever have been able to imagine drawing." These strange animals were indeed turkeys, the protagonists of this intriguing research by Sabine Eiche, who has analyzed the turkey under different points of view; iconographic, linguistic, literary, artistic, culinary and historical. The illustrations, most of them in color, make this stroll through history with turkeys a pleasure for the eyes as well as the mind. Presenting the Turkey deserves to occupy the shelf of every serious turkey fancier, as well as those who simply enjoy enriching their knowledge of cultural and poultry history.
