New York: Privately Printed [by The Derrydale Press] for Ernest R. Gee, 1927. First edition thus (the original was published in 1830); No. 114 of 375 copies. Two reproductions from old prints. [xii], 47,  pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Full reddish brown morocco gilt by Sangorski & Sutcliffe with foxhunting tools to upper board, gilt stamped dog's heads at upper corners and fox masks at lower corners, central gilt stamped running fox, t.e.g. Some slight rubbing. Near fine. First edition thus (the original was published in 1830); No. 114 of 375 copies. Two reproductions from old prints. [xii], 47,  pp. 1 vols. 8vo. UNRECORDED DELUXE BINDING. A reprint of a rare work, with a foreword by the sporting bookseller and authority on early American sport, Ernest R. Gee. This binding is similar to those executed by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for the great Derrydale production of Woodward's Cherished Portraits, and may be counted as an unrecorded Deluxe binding. Gee advertised copies bound in this style as item 46 in his Catalogue number 10 (1927/1928) and it is probable that only a very small number of this edition were bound thus. The handful of copies we have seen (including Connett's own) bore numbers from 113 to 119. Siegel 4; Frazier M-7-a (describing copies in pink boards)
