The Book of Sports : British and Foreign - 1843

£280.00

Product description

"The Book of Sports : British and Foreign - 1843, devoted to the pictorial illustration of the pursuits of the Sportsman in every quarter of the globe"

A stunning book mainly concerning itself with hunting in various forms. There are other contents such as sailing, bird watching etc.. The plates are stunning engravings with plenty of detail.

Brown covers that are bumped to the corners, head and tail of the spine. There's some cracking at the spine on the fep, bookplate and some foxing. There is evidence of some water damage as can be seen by the last image. It isn't an overwhelming factor in the books condition. A delicious tome giving a good insight into past pursuits.
