414 pages6 hours


This vintage book contains a detailed treatise on fox hunting, being an exposition of its science with information on kennel management, breeding hounds, and much more. With a wealth of invaluable information and many helpful tips, this volume is highly recommended for the modern rural sportsman and would make for a worthy addition to collections of hunting literature. Contents include: "The Arena of Breeding Foxhounds", "Quality to be Regarded before Quantity", "Sires and Dams of Approved Characters", "Breeding Judiciously versus Breeding Extensively", "Jasper a Case in Point", Huntsman and Whipper-in", "General Want of Harmony Between them as to the Occult Science", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. Originally published in 1868, 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.
