La Genetica delle colorazioni del pollo...

...é l'edizione italiana del libro "Genetics of chicken colours"
Il libro é stato tradotto in lingua italiana da Saveria Lippera e consta anche di riferimenti a razze autoctone italiane non presenti nell'edizione originale, rispetto alla quale ha un numero maggiore di pagine. La procedura di ordine é effettuata in Olanda, da dove é effettuata anche la spedizione. Questa scelta é stata compiuta dall'autrice per evitare un incremento di prezzo della versione italiana dell'opera rispetto all'edizione inglese; in Italia, difatti, l'IVA dovuta sulle autopubblicazioni (quale é il libro in questione) é fissata al 22% contro il 6% dell'Olanda, mentre i costi per la spedizione sono solo di pochissimo inferiori.
Per ordinare il libro pagandolo con carta di credito si può utilizzare la casella paypal sottostante.
Per effettuare un bonifico bancario, si prega invece di inviare una e-mail: verranno trasmessi codice IBAN e BIC del conto sul quale effettuare il versamento del prezzo.
Una volta effettuato il pagamento, il tempo di consegna previsto é di 4-5 giorni; verrà in ogni caso trasmesso all'acquirente il numero di tracciamento del pacco.

"La genetica delle colorazioni del pollo" per l'Italia (ed Europa) é in vendita al prezzo di 75 più 2 per l'imballo che eviterà danneggiamenti dovuti al trasporto.
Spese postali di invio (tracciabile) :
Totale € 89,95
La spedizione nel resto del mondo: 17,95.
Totale € 94,95
Per informazioni e richieste riguardanti l'edizione italiana, si prega di inviare una mail a Saveria Lippera :

The little English Serama books are revised and available as one large A4 book.

They were 7 and 6 years old and needed to be updated.  The revised, updated and renewed Serama Breed & Colours book is similar in size and page amount as Silkies.
