STAGHUNTING WITH THE "DEVON AND SOMERSET" 1897-1901: AN ACCOUNT OF THE CHASE OF THE WILD RED DEER ON EXMOOR. By Philip Evered. Illustrated by H.M. Lomas.

THE ROEDEER: A MONOGRAPH BY "SNAFFLE."

1904 1st edition. 4to (194 x 254mm). Ppxiv,191+1 page ad. Colour frontispiece, 3 colour plates. Burgundy cloth over thin boards, spine and upper board titled in gilt, with vignette of a roebuck and hound to upper board, top edge gilt, title-page printed in red and black.

A classic on the roe deer and its place in sport. Published in 1904, it was the first English book on roe. It was issued as a subscription edition of only 100 copies and is now extremely scarce. This copy does not state 'Subscription Edition' on the title page, but does have the alphabetical list of subscribers at the back. Chapters include: Natural history of the roedeer; Roe hunting; Roe shooting; The roe in heraldry; Management of roe. It is now believed that "Snaffle" was not, as previously thought, Robert Dunkin but Guy Hardwin Gallenga.
