A propos de cet article

[A Country Squire]. Essay on Hunting: Comprising hunting lawfulness benefits pleasure pastime game scent hounds the horse huntsman sagacity. &c. &c. &c. London: Edward Jeffrey and Son 1820. 3rd ed. (1st pub. 1733). 92p + 1 pl. Old half leather (rubbed); spine gilt stamped. Opening pages somewhat foxed. ** "A Country Squire" remains unidentified. We know this of him: "My Work is plain and rural like its Author: My Science is gotten in green Fields, and has been my study as well as Exercise this 40 Years." After praising country life and sport, he turns to the question of whether rationality and sensibility exist in animals, seeking to prove they do not. In other words, a philosophical-religious defense of hunting, not a how-to treatise. The engraved frontispiece by J. Scott shows a medallion portrait of a man in profile, surrounded by game and hunting equipment. Engraved title page with a hunting vignette, fox mask, and hound head within a vine border.

Description de la librairie

I¿ve been selling and appraising GOOD HORSE AND ART BOOKS since 1973, first by mail as Blue Rider Books, and since 1983 in the full-time open shop that I share with H.L. Mendelsohn (whose books are also on ABE). We¿d love to have you visit the second-oldest secondhand bookshop in Cambridge, just outside Harvard Square (open Tuesday-Saturday noon to 6, or by appointment). If you can¿t make it, go to for many (but by no means all) of my books. My inventory of new, used, and rare equestrian books is one of the largest in the U.S., with special depth in Paul Brown, 19th-century books, dressage, and ephemera (paper items). I love to seek out the obscure, the uncommon, and the overlooked. Harvey Mendelsohn and I also offer a room full of out-of-print scholarly titles on the fine and applied arts, especially art history, architecture and planning, book arts, gardens, 20th-century ceramics, photography, and exhibition catalogues. And you¿ll also find some children¿s books, cookbooks, titles in cultural history and philosophy, and other general books. Many of our books never make it online, so if you¿re looking for items you don¿t see here, please phone or e-mail. Then maybe you, too, like hundreds of happy customers over the years, will say, ¿You have it? YOU¿VE MADE MY DAY!¿
