KIRKUS REVIEW

Through a season's hunting with the most famous of English hunts; the Quorn, the Cottesmere, the Belvoir and the Fernies. The comments on each sketch are equally delightful, full of wit and charm. To add to all this there are color plates that are as warm and enchanting as prints can be. All of which means you'll roll up a record sale if you get behind this book and give it a starting push. Don't forget it is in the same format as My Hunting Sketchbook -- a fine pair -- a better gift -- for A Leicestershire Sketchbook is exactly what you would expect from a combination of Lionel Edwards, R.I., probably the greatest English Equestrian Artist, the most fascinating countryside in England and greatest of all sports. All to my way of thinking but you'll find I'm not exaggerating the moment you show the book to your customers. The drawings are exquisitely executed, black and whites depicting a wide variety of episodes, sad and glad.
