"To admirers of Lionel Edwards's brilliant pictures of the hunting field it is hardly necessary to say that he has all his life been a hunting man. In this sketch-book he gives us the fruits of his experience of the devious and wily ways of the fox, and his rapid, effective pencil illustrates his text with a vividness which has the quality of genius in it." Inside rear hinge paper is torn making hinge weak but it is holding well, slight insect damage at bottom edge of free endpapers, crease at bottom corner of page leaf 31/32, small bump at bottom corner of boards - migrates into pages, tiny bump at top corner of front board, tiny light foxing marks on spine/hinge cloth, very small bump on fore-edge of rear board. Dust jacket has edge tears, chips, wrinkling and wear; spine has dark browning; insect damage on spine and hinges; light browning and soiling on panels; scattered light foxing marks on inside; protected in a mylar sleeve.
