About this Item

The second impression of the fourth edition. 221pp + vi publisher's catalogue at rear. Green diagonal ribbed cloth with a double blind border to upper and lower boards, lettered and ruled in gold at spine and with a small gold illustration to upper board. With a tissue-guarded frontispiece and forty-one captioned wood engraved illustrations by Charles Whymper (the frontispiece is a duplicate). Minor slant to binding, tips of corners bumped and cloth lightly chafed at spine extremities. A tiny blemish of spotting to half-title. A very nice, bright copy. 2000 copies were printed. A collection of twenty-four pieces gathered into nine chapters, all originally printed in The Pall Mall Gazette at weekly intervals between January and April 1878 and written in a far more "chatty" style than Jefferies' previous contributions. Jefferies' gamekeeper is usually said to be based on the character of Benny Haylock, keeper on the Burderop Estate between Coate and Chisledon, whom Jefferies knew as a boy and accompanied on his rounds. Miller & Matthews B8.15. Bookseller Inventory # GM90048
