THE HISTORY OF HUNTING

Volume XXIII of the Lonsdale Library and still no let down in quality or quantity. Hunting and Patrick Chalmers are as natural to each other as Siamese Twins and no one could have done a better job. He has caught the flavor of the Chase. Hunting in the true sense of following hounds, is traced from ancient and medieval times to England, as colorful and inspiring a record as one could ask. Then there are stories and deliciously dry anecdotes, famous bits of verse, the loveliest of the sporting prints and painting, much on the care, treatment and breeding of hounds, old hunting notes and the sport brought down through the Tudors, Stuarts and Georges to Victorian days. For the followers of the Chase who engage actively in the fun or for those who prefer to enjoy the knowledge and thrill without moving from their armchair. A must for those who hunt. Watch it as you are building up toward what should be a good Fall business.
