1st edition hardcover published in London by B.T. Batsford LTD, 1936. Loaded with enchanting photographs, it will transport one to the field with it's great close-ups and panoramic vistas of Olde England. Red cloth boards with black titles show lightly bumped extremities, hinge papers fine, no names, tears or soil. Original dj in mylar shows surface wear and color loss at periphery but displays well with wrap-around color hunt scene art. Sir William Beach Thomas has written a book that will be enjoyed as much by the regular hunting fraternity as by armchair enthusiasts who love to browse over the page of Peter Beckford and Surtees. That it is a work of literature goes without saying, at the same time it embraces the subject perhaps more comprehensively that has yet been attempted, and provides an ipitome of the sport in every English region. The book is divided into two sections: The first deals with the subject in general and in history, and shows its place in English life; The second reviews the chief hunting grounds in detail, with accounts of famous packs and the sports shown in their several countries. The volume is well illustrated depicting every aspect of English hunting, and also scenery, while a series of 10 plates in color reproduces the work of great sporting artists such as Alken, Wolsenholme, and Ferneley.
