By Scrutator

London: "Bell's Life in London", Date: 1852. Original red ribbed cloth boards, with title and graphic illustration of a fleeing fox embossed in gold on upper board. 8vo. xii + 336 pages, folding plan of kennels.

Thirty letters on hounds and hunting by the 'Scrutator', or H. W. Howlock. Letters include 'On Bag Foxes', 'Prejudices of Huntsmen', and 'Remarks on Scent'.

CONDITION

The cloth binding shows signs of wear. All contents present and pages good throughout. A few pages towards the rear have very light staining to the gutter area as can be seen in the last photo provided, but this isn't bad. There are a couple of newspaper clipping pasted to the rear endpapers. Overall good with lightly soiled covers.
