About this Item

Unopened copy, from a subscription edition: The entertaining trials and tribulations of dedicated fox-hunter Tom Scott, illustrated by Hablot Knight Browne, a.k.a. Phiz. The author was a sporting writer and novelist whose keen-eyed chronicles of the golden age of foxhunting were thought to carry a whiff of the vulgar in their day (Allibone did not deign to mention any of his fiction) ? but he is now appreciated for his "mordant observations on men, women, and manners; his entertaining array of eccentrics, rakes, and rogues; his skill in the construction of lively dialogue (a matter over which he took great pains); his happy genius for unforgettable and quotable phrases . . ." (DNB). First published in 1847, these vividly rendered hunting scenes appear here "printed for subscribers from the plates of the Original Edition issued by Bradbury, Agnew & Co." The volume is illustrated with => 8 plates by Phiz, hand-colored, and 13 steel-engraved plates by W.T. Maude. While Phiz's caricatures are sharp and witty, the coloring itself is rather elegantly restrained. In addition to the color and black-and-white plates, numerous in-text wood-engravings decorate the text, the whole providing many depictions of the hunt. Binding: Publisher's crimson cloth, front cover and spine stamped with hunting vignettes and hound decorations in black and gilt. 8vo (22.6 cm, 8.9"). [14], 265, [1] pp.; 8 col. plts.; 13 plts. NCBEL, III, 967. On Surtees, see: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography online. Binding as above, spine much sunned but covers bright and fresh, minimal wear to extremities. Signatures unopened. Save for the dimmed spine, a beautiful and bright copy. Bookseller Inventory # 30434
