The Jaunts and Jollities of that Renowned Sporting Citizen Mr. John Jorrocks of St. Botolph Lane and Great Coram Street
219 p. Surtees was a solicitor (he wrote a book on the law as it pertained to horses). Upon finding himself next in line to inherit has father's estate, he gave himself over to editing a sporting magazine and created the endearing and humorous Mr. Jorrocks, a grocer and horseman (he wrote a novel about him). This book is a compilation of papers from the New Sporting Magazine, 1831-1834. There are ten fine watercolor illustrations by Gordon Ross, of whom Newton says "there is no living superior." This is number 635 of a limited edition of 1500; it is signed by Ross. Hard cover, brown cloth with gilt titles and decorations (titles on spine are rubbed); printed on fine paper with ragged fore edge; top edges gilt; slipcase, intact but worn at all extremities.
