Lovely 2nd printing hardcover in navy blue cloth with bright gilt titles on frt board and backstrip. Corners bumped showing color loss but no major rubbing. Cloth on boards not pulled as tight as it could be, bit of wavyness but nothing offensive. Pictorial dj in new mylar is a professional reproduction that displays well and will keep this book in fine form. Text unmarked save for age toning on end pages. Most of the colored tipped-in plates on heavy brown card stock by Lionel Edwards are in fine condition save for one with a faint crease (no chipped edges) and one plate shows some cream paper adhering from opposing page, not loose, just extra glue from printer again, not offensive but wanting to mention all visible defects. This is one of a series of foxhunting and sporting poem volumes, all in uniform 4to size, illustrated by Lionel Edwards (1878-1966). L.E. was one of the most prolific of British sporting artists, and a prolific author as well. He studied under A. Cope and Frank Calderon at the School of Animal Painting in Kensington. Edwards was most at home in straight hunting sketches, and he became a favorite of the hunting fraternity, who even today find pleasure in the more than seventy books he illustrated. Welcome company by the fireside for any actual or armchair lover of the chase.
