Light green paper covered boards, white cloth spine, pasted-on front cover label, endpapers a bit darkened (typical of this binding). 24 pp + a 2 page introduction by Ernest Gee. "A lovely little book attributed to the Derrydale Press" (Frazier). Siegel dismisses this fine reprint of the 1848 edition as a non-Derrydale, while Frazier argues that it is a very early Derrydale Press book, and lists it as one of the ".hard to identify Derrydales". "The book and its design, paper, binding and style, are so obviously Derrydale in spirit and influence, that one only has to put it side by side with Connett's American Trout Streams, by Henry Ingraham, produced the following year, to see how this book and the books of the Press came together." (Frazier). ".the original book is so rare that it is practically unknown, and in my long experience I have seen but two copies.Meynell, known as the Father of Fox-hunting, was born in 1735." (Gee). "A rare book, considered to be the best treatise on fox hunting extant.Hugo Meynell, of Quorndon .was the most successful sportsman of his time. He prided himself on the steadiness and docility of his hounds and is said to have had more good runs than any other pack of the day" (Schwerdt, commenting on the 1848 edition). Very good.

Item Description: Privately Printed for Ernest R. Gee[at the Press of August Becker, Brooklyn], n.p., 1926. Large paper. Number 1 of 28 copies on Large Paper. Frontispiece portrait by Gordon Ross. Title page vignette of a foxhound. [vi], 24, [2] pp. 1 vols. 8vo (9.25 x 6.25 inches). Inscribed by Gee to his best customer, the greatest American sporting book collector of all time, Alfred B. Maclay: "Alfred B. Maclay/ With the best wishes of The Publisher. Ernest R Gee. This is No. 1 of 28 copies on Large Paper."While there is disagreement as to whether this volume is one of the Derrydale Press works Frazier states: "But the book and its design, paper, binding, and style, are so obviously Derrydale in spirit and influence, that one has only to put itside by side with Connett's American Trout Streams . produced the same year, 1926, or Connett's own Magic Hours, produced the following year, to see how this book and the books of the Press came together. The only question would be whether Ernest Gee had more influence on Connett in 1926, or whether Connett had more influence on Gee in this important year when, together, they formed the group that formed the press." (Frazier)"Hugo Meynell was one of the greatest sportsmen of his day and this essay is considered the best ever written on Fox Hunting." - Notes accompanying the entry for the first edition in the personal library catalog of Alfred B. Maclay (in our possession) where the present book is also found. Maclay paid 20 dollars for it."Some people consider the Mark Twain to be the first Derrydale, but I consider this one to be. They were both brought out in early 1926 and this deluxe copy [as is our copy] . is even more rare at 1 of 28, than the Mark Twain." (Note accompanying Calderwood Books catalog where a regular copy was offered at $3000.00). A consummate rarity of the highest order.
