Drag hunting first developed as a way to test foxhounds, but it had turned into its own sport by the middle of the 19th century. Army officers enjoyed the faster-paced drag hunt at least as far back as 1863; even today, the military has a pack of drag hounds. The sport is reliant on the goodwill and cooperation of landowners and farmers." The book's narrative begins, "The Battalion arrived at Windsor from Uffington at the end of manoeuvres, On September 16th, 1893. The following day being Sunday, a well-attended levee was held at the Kennels, and a list of names being provided by Caley, attempts were made to fit them to various hounds.". Very Good Minus.

Arms of the Dutchess of Kendal
England. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Ill.: Hogarth, William. This is a late 18th century English engraving after an oil painting by William Hogarth [1697-1764]. Arms of the Dutchess (sic!) of Kendal (and Munster; German Countess Ehrengard von der Schulenburg, Princess of Eberstein). Presumed circa 1790. Inscribed: Hogarth invt. A. M. Ireland sculpt. Not examined out of shrink-wrapped matting. Observable print size at least 6.5 x 5.5 inches. Size as matted is 11.5 x 10.5. Over all very clean save for very light toning/foxing along the left side of the left arms bearer. Niemeyer Rare Books provides to following interesting information: "Obviously unmarried and without issue, the lady is said to have been close to George I of Great Britain of the House of Hanover and followed him soon after his accession to the throne (1714), where he endowed her from 1716 on with several titles of nobility. Due to various German specimens, yet indeed also some absurdities, Hogarth seems to have worked the arms still before the deeds of 1716. Trusler not least praises the simplicity and elegance in the attitudes of the two young lateral arms bearers.". Very Good Plus.
