Windsor: Oxley and Sons, 1895. First edition. A very scarce hunt history. Bound in contemporary burgundy half morocco with dark blue boards. Gilt front cover titles. Raised and gilded bands to spine. Some wear to extremities and small nick to foot of spine, but overall pretty sound and honest. Small oval paper sticker to front cover. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Bookplate of Alfred Schwabe to front pastedown. Letter from a Mr Drummond thanking Schwabe for the loan of the book, dated 26/1/1912 loosely inserted. Frontispiece, (6), 43, (3) pages. 24 full page illustrations including the frontispiece, mainly photogravures, several of meets, and some of well-executed hunt cartoons and sketches, plus a facsimile, laid down, of an amusing bill sent to the hunt for 9s and 5d for food stolen by a hound. Also several menus and invitations laid down on blank pages towards the end. The text is essentially a chatty, and highly descriptive hunt diary, with many amusing encounters. No copies listed on addall.com, none on COPAC, and none on ABPC. Would appear to be a privately printed, though high quality, publication. A scarce regimental hunt history. We can send images of this book on request. Oblong Folio - 10 By 13 Inches. Very Good. Half Morocco.
