Limited edition of 1000, this copy hand-numbered 189. An heroic volume published at the time of the First Word War. The end of the Preface reads "By the time the next volume is in the press, let us hope that a victorious peace will have been concluded, and that preparations for the resumption of sport on something like the old lines will be the task of the gallant sportsment who are now playing the greater game.". The Contents are in remarkably good condition, the portraits all with tissue guards, hinge tight, no spotting or foxing. The binding is a bit scruffy, green linen spine and corners over buff linen sides with gilt titles on the front and spine. Some damp stains on the front and some fraying along the edge where the different cloths meet. Marbled green end papers. A noble and handsome item. This will incur additional postage charges overseas. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
