"The title of this work should pretty well explain its nature. Sirloin speaks with ponderous emphasis for itself, and Saddle has a triple bearing on horses, sheep and pigs. It is, in fact, simply the record of what I have seen and heard during the last eleven years in the course of my summer rambles from Cumberland to Cornwall." - (from the Preface) Henry Hall Dixon (1822-1870) was an English sporting writer known by his nom de plume, "The Druid. " He was born at Warwick Bridge, Cumberland, in 1822, and was educated at Rugby and at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he graduated in 1846. He took up the profession of the law, but, though called to the bar in 1853, soon returned to sporting journalism, in which he had already made a name for himself, and began to write regularly for the Sporting Magazine, in the pages of which appeared three of his novels, Post and Paddock (1856) Silk and Scarlet (1859) and Scott and Sebright (1862) He also published a legal compendium entitled The Law of the Farm (1858) which ran through several editions. His other more important works were Field and Fern (1865) giving an account of the herds and flocks of Scotland, and Saddle and Sirloin (1870) treating in the same manner those of England. He died at Kensington in 1870. 16 chapters in this volume are absolutely exhaustive covering nearly every manner of sporting pastimes and pursuits, just a sampling are: The Mail and Coach Days/ The Wrestling Ring/ Cumberland Wrestling Champions/ The Late Sir James Graham, his farming tastes/ Recollections of Carlisle/ Meeting the Judges/ Old Posting Times/ Killow Sale of Shorthorns/ Mr. Watson's and the late Mr. Brown's Pigs/ Champion Bulls/ The late Captain Spencer's Greyhounds/ Mr. Crozier's Hounds, The Brampton Cousing Meeting/ A Downing Street Interview/ Newcastle Races/ The Slipping Race/ Sir Charles Monek/ Woodhorn, A Felton Festival/ The Wild Cattle of Chillingham/ Great Shorthorn Breeders, Show of Terriers at Yarm, Shoeing Contest/ Hound Show at Redcar/ Photographing the Huntsman/ The Neasham Hall Stud/ Sparkler of the Hurworth/ Eccentric Sporting Characters/ The late Sir Tatton Sykes/ Life at Sledmere/ Market Weighton Trotters/ A Morning on Langton Wold/ A Work on Knavesmire/ The Hunting Tragedy on the Ure/ Drax Abbey, Warping/ Harrogate/ Yorkshire Stock and Hound Show at Wetherby, Captain Gunter's Herd, Farnley Hall/ Mr. Peel's Herd/ Manchester Race Courses/ Heaton Park/ Great Coursing Parks/ Mr. Atherton's Farm, Sketches of Great Greyhounds/ Cattle Plague in Cheshire/ Sir Watkin Wynn's Hounds/ Mr. Naylor's Herefords/ Lord Berwick's Herefords; Old Bob Luther/ Clayton and Shuttleworth's Works at Lincoln/ Lincoln Flocks/ Aylesby Manor/ Coursing at Sundorne and much more.
