This informative work offers thorough advice and information regarding a wide range of outdoor pursuits and field sports, including gun management and the preservation of game. 

Illustrated with seven plates, including a frontispiece and portrait of the author. Collated, complete.

A celebrated diarist author and sportsman, Hawker was considered one of the 'greatest shots' of the nineteenth century. His sporting accomplishments were widely followed, often being reported in The Times newspaper.

Condition

In a half calf binding, with cloth covered boards, and gilt detailing to back strip. Light rubbing to raised bands, joints, and board perimeters. Otherwise, externally excellent. Internally, firmly bound. Pages generally clean and bright, with only the odd spot, and light spotting to plates.
