Overview

HOW TO TRAP AND SNARE A COMPLETE MANUAL FOR THE SPORTSMAN, GAME PRESERVER, AND AMATEUR ON THE ART OF TAKING ANIMALS AND BIRDS IN TRAPS, SNARES AND NETS WITH NUMEROUS ILLUSTRATIONS BY WILLIAM CARNEGIE ("MOORMAN") "This manual is intended to provide as much practical insight into the various modes of trapping, snaring, and netting the animals and birds of the British Isles as can be furnished by writing. Whenever possible and desirable, such insight is given of the haunts and habitats of the creatures to be caught as may prove useful to the amateur or tyro, for whom it is more particularly planned, than for the professional. Every piece of work, device, trap, snare, or net described has been performed, employed, or made by the author, and it is hoped that the experience gained during many years may prove of advantage to others who may be induced to follow the Art of the Trapper, either for pastime or profit" William Carnegie, 1880. Originally published at the turn of the century, this extremely rare book has been reprinted in a high-quality hardback edition by Read Country Books. It is a complete and detailed treatise on the art of trapping, snaring and netting, written by a master of the craft and extensively illustrated throughout. Never before reprinted, this unique work is packed with information that is still of great practical value to the sporting man today. 224 pages + 8 pages of original adverts.
