Description:

(8 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches). Numerous hand-coloured plates after John Leech, Henry Alken and others. Red smooth morocco by Riviere and Son, covers with central device in gilt, spines with raised bands in compartments, black morocco lettering pieces in the second and fourth, the others with a sporting design in gilt A finely bound set from the pen of the 19th-century's best known sporting author: Thackeray envied him, William Morris considered him a master of life. Surtees' best-selling works are humorous and lively. The author was arguably a match for Dickens in the field of social observation, whilst surpassing him as an observer of the natural world: with warmth and humour Surtees captured an era and a way of life that reached its zenith during Queen Victoria's reign. The Sporting Novels were essential reading in the country houses of Victorian England and deserve a place on the shelves of today's private library. This set of later editions with hand colored plates beautifully bound by Riviere and Son. Five works in five volumes, octavo. Bookseller Inventory #
