Item description for Shooting & Sport in England: Past & Present (History of Shooting Series) (History of Shooting Series) by Lt. Col. E.C.C. Hartopp...



By Colonel C.C. Hartopp.

This entertaining but little known book was first published in London in 1894 as "Sport in England." It is a fascinating historical record of the shooting field in late 19th century England.

The Eton educated author was a "man of means," but was equally at home when working his ferrets, assisting a keeper with his many tasks, or taking numerous high birds on exclusive sporting estates.

Thirty concise chapters illustrate the authors experiences of the above, and also include many jottings and valuable hints on related subjects:- The Young English Sportsman. -- Poaching of Paired Birds. -- The Egg Season and its Enemies. -- Landlord and Tenant Rights. -- Crop Cutting. -- Grouse, Partridge and "Longtails," Past and Present. -- Covert Shooting. -- Good Shots and Others. -- Funny Facts in Sport. -- Ferrets and their Management. -- Trapping, Netting, and Snaring. -- Poaching, and How it is Done. -- Small Days and Pot Hunting. -- Turning Down Live Bought Pheasants. -- How and Where Rabbit Farming Can Pay. -- The Gamekeeper and his Duties. -- Guns and Gunmakers. -- The Quarry. -- Vermin. -- Recipes for Diseases in Dogs. -- Retrievers of the Present Day. Etc.

This book will prove of immense interest to all who derive their pleasure and/or profit from the field sports of today's England.

The book is a quality production in a soft cover format.
