This book, first published in 1887, contains a collection of anecdotes and reminisces of a late nineteenth-century fox hunter. Covering all aspects of the sport, this volume will be of considerable interest to sporting historians and those with an interest in the history of English hunting. Contents include: "With Foxhounds", "With Staghounds", "With Draghounds", "With Harriers", "Steeplechasing and Hurdle Racing", "Conditioning and Schooling", "The Show Yard in relation to Hunters", "Crossing a Country", "Ladies in the Field", "Steeplechase Courses and Point-to-Point Races", and "The Mudbury Hunt Dinner". Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of fox hunting.
