Summary

This vintage book contains detailed accounts of various hunting expeditions and experiences in early twentieth-century England, with descriptions of notable participants, events, and developments. Profusely illustrated and full of interesting information, this volume is highly recommended for hunting historians, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of vintage hunting literature. Contents include: "Peterborough and the Fitzwilliam Hunt", "A Hunt in Durham with the Braes of Derwent", "The Stainton Dale, When a Trencher-Fed Pack, and One-Horse Hunt", "Mr Gerald Hardy and the Modernised Maynells", "Atherstone Hound Notes-A Hunt with Sir William Cooke and the Southwold Steeplechasing in Lord Harrington's Country", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. This volume was first published in 1911 and is being republished now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of fox hunting.
