Complete set of 27 editions of the Rowland Ward Records of Big Game series starting with the first edition in 1892 and going through 2006 which is the last book published that is now out of print. All books are in original bindings, the overall condition of the set is very good indeed. Of course the set includes the highly sought after 1st, 2nd, 9th, and 10th edition. In short a complete collection and one we have never offered before. A unique opportunity for a collector--a complete set, of this quality would take a collector half a lifetime to put together. The first 10 Rowland Ward Records of Big Game are universally regarded as the most sought after and finest produced of all the RW record books. It contains a wealth of information and illustrations of the top trophies ever recorded, many that have not been surpassed even today. The period photos and entries from the likes of Prince Demidoff, St. George Littledale, King George V and numerous luminaries of the Victorian hunting era make these books one of the great treasures of any hunting book collection.
