What Our Customers Say...
Colour Plates, Early Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, Uncommon
Grohman was an Anglo-Austrian author, best known for his works on the history of hunting and other sports. Indeed, Grohman was a passionate collector of European sporting art, and developed an intense interest in the history and art of sport, building up an extensive library on hunting and game animals. As a culmination of these interests, in 1904 he produced a lavishly illustrated and authoritative edition of 'The Master of Game'. Due to the popularity of this work, Grohman went on to produce this work, 'Sport in Art, An Iconography of Sport ', drawing on his extensive historical knowledge of early sporting art gained through his own collecting and research, to produce this study of early depictions of hunting.
