This fascinating book of Scottish field sports was first published in London 1889 and is now extremely scarce in the first edition. We are now republishing it from the original text and illustration. The author, although an expert and experienced shooting man and salmon angler, did not write this book with any intention of teaching his readers "How to Sport.". Rather, its 406 pages are devoted to a comprehensive chronicle of the facts and figures, sporting records and natural history relating to the field sports of that period. Twenty four detailed chapters include: - Scotland's Most Famous Out of Door Sports. - Scotland's Deer and Grouse Grounds. - Deer. Natural History and Stalking. - Hare Coursing. - Rabbits for Sport and Food. - The Grouse Family. - Natural Economy of a Grouse Moor. - Pheasants and Partridges. - Other Birds of Sport. - Poaching. - Gamekeepers. - Supply and Value of Game. - Game in Larder, Kitchen, and Dining Room. - Salmonia. Natural History and Fishing. - Troutiana. - Trout and Sport in the Borders. - Vermin of the Moors and Manors. - The Fox and Foxhunting. - Golf. - Curling. - Patrons and Parasites of Sport. Etc. This unusual and eminently readable book can be thoroughly recommended for inclusion in the library of all true country sportsmen. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
