About this Item

Hardcover. 188 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.7in. x 0.9in.MINOR FIELD SPORTS A book for the true countryman of all ages. First published in the early 1900s, now reprinted in a fine-quality hardback edition for a new generation. It will stir many nostalgic memories for older readers and teach younger ones some new and unusual methods of taking various kinds of quarry. Its seven illustrated chapters cover 166 pages and include details and instructions on a fascinating variety of subjects, many of them now illegal. Its a truly readable book from a more innocent age when the country was a freer place. Weve reprinted this with genuine pleasure. It describes the sporting activities of a generation only just removed from ours but now separated forever by new legislation and a change in attitudes amongst out-of-touch urbanites. My father described it as almost a diary of my country childhood. It is without doubt the most interesting book weve ever sold and I defy anyone with even a passing interest in the countryside or field sports to be able to flick through it without becoming absorbed.
