The Book of Field Sports and Library of Veterinary Knowledge - Vols I & II

£500.00

Product description

EXCEPTIONALLY RARE.

2 volume set of 'The Book of Field Sports and Library of Veterinary Knowledge', undated but believed to be circa 1860. Illustrated with superb colour and b/w plates.

Vol 1 is complete to p. 462 with all plates present, tightly bound, some staining but overall very good. Pages 463 - 472 including 5 plates are present but loose and are torn, stained and creased. Pages 473 - 484 are bound. Looks like the previous owner thought these were the only relevant pages and carried them around with him!

Vol 2 - all 19 anatomical plates present. 4 plates in colour including 'Thormanby'. Pages 15/16 and plate loose and in poor condition.

The leather binding is very good on both volumes but marbled boards are quite rubbed with pieces missing.

A rare opportunity to purchase both volumes of this scare work.
