A good introduction to game and rough shooting. This is a copy of the first edition, dated 1924 at the end of the preface and with the author billed as the Shooting Editor of "The Field" on the title-page. We have also seen copies of a later first edition reprint which bills the author as the Editor-in-Chief of "The Field" and removes the 1924 date from the end of the preface. Eric Parker was editor of The Field from 1930 to 1938. Chapters include:- Learning to hit; Kit and gear; Safety first; Partridges; Pheasants; Grouse: I. Natural history; Grouse: II. Shooting, etc; Snipe; Woodcock; Blackgame, ptarmigan, capercaillie; Pigeon; Wild duck and teal; Hares and rabbits; "Various"; "Vermin," and the balance of wild life; Some records of bags.
