In the eighty-seven years since there has been only one other edition, and the present revival of interest in Trollope will make this new presentation particularly timely. Trollope is chiefly known for his fictional writings, but here he was able to give full rein to his chief interest - hunting. In his autobiography he said: `I have written on very many subjects and on most of them with pleasure, but on no subject with such delight as that of hunting`.
