Description: (London, Longmans, Green, and Co, 1909). . 8vo; original pictorial cloth; pp. xiv + 358 + adverts.; plates, line drawings (incl. some by Whymper); tables. Ex-library copy with label on front pastedown and code on spine; light wear to cloth; some hand-stamps and codes inside; scattered light foxing. Good to very good condition. "Invigorating mountain air and wild scenery impart a special charm to grouse shooting. To see good dogs working over a wide range of heather, carefully quartering the likely ground and backing each other with stiffened limbs and tails at each steady point, is delightful to a sportsman, the more so as the use of dogs in the pursuit of partridges is more and more rare. Good lungs, good muscle, good nerve, and good sight are all more or less essential to any large measure of success.".
