Here is the notebook of the great Englishman, artist, sportsman and dog lover. It was the notebook of his most cherished and personal sketches which he refused to sell. When Edith Somerville of the famous firm of Somerville and Ross writes: ""His book has gone straight to my heart and I must confess brought tears to my eyes --. His drawings are almost incredibly good -- I couldn't imagine anything better, so full of imagination and spirit and knowledge. I've never seen such lovely work"" -- we have a classic. It is a book like all of Aldin's which gives far more than pictures, hunts, hounds, or horses, but it is quite indescribable. Through Aldin's death not only a great, artist and sportsman was lost but a rare spirit destined for great renown. If something of that spirit can be preserved and spread abroad through the sale of his works, booksellers should be proud to suggest and promote them.
