An important early bibliography of sporting books and prints. Boxing - bull and badger baiting - dog fighting - ratting - coaching - driving - riding - cockfighting - coursing - fishing - foxhunting - falconry - big game - hunting - shooting - etc. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
