The Sportsman" (Compiled and Edited)
British Sports and Sportsmen 11 Volumes Limited editions
British Sports and Sportsmen, Covent Garden, London, 1916. A lovely set comprising of 9 volumes in about fine bright condition all number 844 of a limited edition of 1,000, as stated on the verso page early in each publication. No inscriptions and clean pages throughout all volumes. These are elephant folio, so big and very impressive volumes. All 9 are in similar condition, being just slightly rubbed at the very corner tips, with the odd little surface scuff to the leather boards. Some have very sporadic, mild foxing but really they are all quite superb. The earliest date of publication stated is 1916 for the Yachting and Rowing volume, although most are undated. There are also the two companion volumes included, Past Sportsmen parts I and II; it's fairly evident from the pictures that part I is somewhat worn at the spine ends and rubbed along the length of the spine, much less so is part II. Internally both are very sound but, it has to be said that these two volumes are in nowhere near as nice condition as the main 9 volumes. More information on request. Please enquire first before placing an order, especially from overseas, as it may not be possible to send in the post due to the size and weight of this set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
