A Sporting Pilgrimage: Riding to Hounds, Golf, Rowing, Football, Club and University Athletics. Studies in English Sport, Past and Present

by Caspar W. Whitney

Condition: Very Good +


London: Osgood, McIlvaine & Co, 1895. Decorative Cloth. Very Good +. The much less common --and far more attractive-- 1895 1st British edition, following the original American edition by one year. Tight and VG+ in its duotone cloth, with crisp gilt-tiling and design along the front panel and spine. Neat former owner inscription at the front pastedown, offsetting to the front and rear endpapers. Just a touch of light staining as well at the foot of the preliminaries (not affecting the text at all). Thick octavo, generously illustrated thruout in crisp black-and-white photos and etchings.
