More About This Title Manual of British Rural Sports: The Pursuit of Wild Animals for Sport
The Manual of British Rural Sports first appeared in 1856 and quickly established itself as an excellent handbook to the many outdoor pursuits practiced in the British countryside. All aspects of these pursuits are covered, including rules and regulations, tactics, and information and diagrams of the required equipment. Informs the Victorian gentleman which floats to use when fishing for bream and which caliber of shot to use when shooting grouse. Nostalgic in its production, this book will capture an important niche in the expanding heritage market.
Dr. John Henry Walsh was a respected Victorian writer on sport who produced many works under his nomme de plume of Stonehenge. Initially a surgeon, he gave up medicine to become editor of Field magazine, a founder of the National Coursing Club, and the All England Lawn Tennis Club. He produced a prolific number of writings on rural sport. His Manuals of British Rural Sports ran to 16 editions.
