Rowland Ward. 1899 London, 3rd edn, 504pp, illus. A very good plus copy. Inner hinges tight. Gilt bright, cloth bright, corners slightly bent. Previous owner's ink inscription. Item #002975
The third edition of the famous RW record book series, now well over 100 years old. Only in the third edition did the book gain momentum and it became significantly thicker (over 500 pages) whereas in the first two editions it had clearly been an idea but not necessarily a successful idea. Like all other early RW books this volume is full of interesting photos and lore about the early hunting fraternity and a who is who of hunting in Victorian times.
