Product description

Title: I Walked By Night

Being the Life and History of the King of the Norfolk Poachers

Written by: Himself

Edited by Lilias Rider Haggard

Illustrated by Edward Seago

The life story, written by himself, of a famous Poacher who in his day played many parts, house boy, shepherd, horse - breaker, mill hand, gamekeeper, and rat catcher to the troops! From the time when, as a child, he went to prison and the tread mill for snaring a rabbit, he lived, except for short intervals, "agin the law." The book is a wonderful insight into a time that is past, the day of child labour and wise women, of smugglers and transportation. He tells the secrets of his trade, for he says - "It don't matter now, I can't play the game no more." It is a storehouse of local lore and ballad, of magic charms and tales of animals and birds, of men and matters ranging from Norfolk to Ireland and the North. Above all, it is the history of a man's life, of his loves, his hates, and his deeds, told without reserve, with humour and a rare philosophy.

Illustrated by the well known Norfolk artist, Mr Edward Seago, I walked by Night is a book for all lovers of the countryside and its many ramifications, whether as a gift or as an addition to the collectors' library of simply as entertainment.

The book has foxing on the endpages, page edges and pages throughout.

The dust jacket has wear and tears along the upper, lower and side edges, to the upper and lower spine and foxing on the front and rear sleeves.

The book has white boards and black lettering to the spine as well as a black illustration on the upper boards.

The first edition was published in October 1935, reprinted in October 1935 and reprinted in December 1935.
