- Additional Information
Details"Following on our 'Pheasant Rearer's Manual,' we herewith offer to our customers a second volume of the series. Our present work contains a fund of interesting information information, collected by our firm during the many years we have been engaged in the business of supplying the gamekeeper with the requirements of his profession. Our remarks are principally confined to that poaching directed against pheasants, partridges, hares, and rabbits, judging other as outside our province; however, we venture to assert that wherever the gamekeeper may be situated, and whatever may be the nature of his charge, he will find something within especially applicable to his duties. The many interesting anecdotes related, concerning both keeper and poacher, should prove amusing and instructive; We do not exaggerate the reality of the dangers accompanying the keeper's daily path, rather erring in a contrary direction; recent events have amply proved that to thoroughly fulfil the duties of his calling he must be a man of nerve, therefore, to those sportsmen who imagine his life an easy one, and free from care and worry, we earnestly commend a perusal of the following pages, confident they will afterwards agree with us - that no labourer is more worthy of his hire. (The reception which the first and second editions of this ork received has induced us to issue to issue a third edition.)"
