Marrins Bookshop
(Folkestone, KENT, United Kingdom)

Book Description Sherwood, Gilbert, and Piper, Paternoster Row., 1831. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 4to. 5.75 x 8.75 inches. [ii] + v + [ii] +vi + 940 pp. Majority of text in double columns. The Appendix on the Game Act of 1831 is inserted at the front of the text. Bound in original tree calf with decorative gilt borders; spine rebacked, preserving original, with new endpapers, in compartments decorated gilt with contrasting maroon morocco title label, gilt. Some wear to extremities, including lower edge, but otherwise a very good copy. Ownership stamp at foot of half title. Illustrated by portrait frontispiece and by 30 wood engraved and copper plates, including one folding hand coloured aquatint, and by a folding table. Decorated by vignette at start of main text. Well illustrated alphabetically arranged compilation on all aspects of field sports, including hunting and shooting ,horse racing, cockfighting and angling. The author, Thomas Burgeland Johnson (c.1878-1840), writer on field sports, had already published books on shooting and hunting but this Cyclopedia was his most successful work. In it he displays typically robust opinions, describing poachers as 'those nocturnal depredators, by whom the game is so shamefully destroyed, in opposition to all law and in defiance of order.' A good example of the systematic works which reflected the increasing early nineteenth century obsession with all aspects of outdoor sporting activities. Seller Inventory # 23846
