Deer Stalking and the Deer Forests of Scotland

London: Kegan Paul, 1901. Archibald Thorburn. First. vellum Over boards). 343 pp, ill both from photos and by Thorburn. A beautiful book on deer hunting in the UK, especially in the Scottish deer forests. Well written and informative and one of the best on the specialty subject. Copy from the library of noted author/hunter John Batten, his signature & year acquired in front., also lovely engraved bookplate of Henry Hart Davis. VG condition: boards show some wear, esp. at corners, light markings on boards, the orig. gilt stamped vellum spine is slightly soiled and has a few starting creases and little wear at spine tips (but NO loss of vellum). Probably a touch better than only vg considering the size and weight of the book (very heavy). Inside hinges firm and binding is tight. VG. Item #93
