8vo. 26 by 18 cm. 256 pp. With 15 color plates. Reprint of classic. Gamonia was intended as a guide or handbook on the maintenance of a hunting preserve, or how best to set up farmland or woodland so as to optimize hunting or shooting potential. Written in a comparatively breezy or conversational style, its words of advice are still appreciated and read -- it remains a valuable reference, a classic on the subject. But without question the work is treasured above all else for its wonderful plates depicting sportsmen of the Regency Era -- plates much reproduced, framed and emulated. Clean and tight, with a very good or better dust jacket (with a few minor edge chips/tears). Bookseller Inventory #
