Chapters on natural history by Rev. H.A. Macpherson, shooting (and hawking) by Hon. Gerald Lascelles, coursing by Charles Richardson, beagling by G.H. Longman, harriers by J.S. Gibbons and cookery by Col. Kenney Herbert. This series of monographs by the most experienced sportsmen of the day are still of immense value as the most detailed and comprehensive works ever published on British game species. The series was renamed "The Fur, Feather and Fin Series" part way through publication when it was decided to include volumes on salmon, trout and pike and perch.
