SPORT IN PEACE AND WAR. By Anthony Buxton.

1920 1st edition. Small 8vo (132 x 195mm). Ppviii.120. Title-page printed in red and black. Not illustrated. Red cloth, upper board and spine titled in black.

Trout fishing, game shooting, galloping after hare and partridge and pigsticking on the Western Front. The author also recalls sea trout fishing in Norway along with some natural history and bird watching". These chapters, some of which have already appeared in print, were written partly in times of peace and partly in times of War. ... I feel some apology is needed for any further reference to that over-written subject, the War, but the book contains nothing whatever of military value or interest except the most convincing testimony that a good many members of his Majesty's forces, myself included, ought to have been court-martialled for spending a great deal more of our time in amusing ourselves than we were paid to do. I can only say in mitigation that those of us who were keen on sport succeeded in keeping up our spirits by making the best use of every opportunity in that direction, and that the higher our spirits were the better for all concerned". Chapters include:- Fishing in Northern France; Dry-fly fishing for sea trout; The trout of the mill-pool; Galloping; A fox out hunting; Pig-sticking; Shooting; Birds on the Western Front; A second year's observations; More about sea trout. With a foreword by the author's father, E.N. Buxton.
