Book Description Bradbury, Agnew, & Co., London. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. [no date c1880]. Subscription Edition. From plates of the originals. The subscription is complete in these six volumes. ---------- Red cloth, beveled edges, Stamped decoration in gilt and black on front and spine. Rear board blind-stamped frame outlines. Front board bright, spine minor dulling. Each with hand-coloured title vignette. Bindings very tight and square. Text clean, light even toning. Minimal handling wear. Offsetting to endpages. Handsome and collectible. ------ Illustrated with 87 tissue-guarded hand-colored plates by H.K. Browne (Phiz) and John Leech. Additional in-text illustrations in monochrome. -------- 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. Bookseller Inventory # 008610
