Book Description London: John Lane, the Bodley Head Limited, 1927., 1927. APPERLEY, Charles James, as "NIMROD" (1778–1843). The Chace, the Road and the Turf by Nimrod. A New Edition with an Introduction by W. Shaw Sparrow, London: John Lane, the Bodley Head Limited, 1927. 4to., (9 4/8 x 7 inches). Colour frontispiece, 7 colour plates, and 8 black and white. Contemporary green calf, gilt (unevenly faded to tan). First published in the Quarterley Review and then in book form in 1837. Apperley's "expert knowledge and social status made him an invaluable recruit to the sporting press of the time, and he may even be said to have created the role of gentleman hunting correspondent. Writing at first under various pseudonyms (Acastus, Eques, and A), he published his first article for the Sporting Magazine as Nimrod in January 1822 and he subsequently usually used that nom de plume. For five seasons, from 1824 to 1828, he was the magazine's official representative, with a contract that gave him £1500 p.a., a remarkably high salary designed to cover his travelling expenses and the upkeep of a string of hunters" (Norman Gash for DNB).

From 1813 to 1819 he was the agent for his brother-in-law's estates and lived at Ty Gwyn, Llanbeblig. Around 1821, under the pseudonym of "Nimrod", Apperley began to contribute a series of articles to The Sporting Magazine that covered horse races, hunt meets and other sporting events. His references to the personalities of the people he knew or met at such events helped to double the circulation of the magazine within a few years. Mr. Pittman, the proprietor of The Sporting Magazine, gave Nimrod a handsome salary and defrayed all the expenses of his tours. He also gave Nimrod a stud of hunters. After Pittman's death, the proprietors of the magazine sued Apperley for the money that had been advanced. To avoid imprisonment, Apperley moved to Calais in 1830, where he supported himself by writing. Apperley is best known for his two books, The Life of a Sportsman, and Memoirs of the Life of John Mytton, both of which were illustrated with coloured engravings by Henry Thomas Alken (cf : Wikipedia) - nb : La première édition en volume est parue en 1837, celle-ci en 1870.
