First edition, 4 vols., 4to, xxiv, 324; xvi, 359, [1]; [12], 256; xx, 260pp., number 11 of an edition of 300 sets signed, THIS BEING ONE OF THE 50 SETS IN THE DE-LUXE BINDING, coloured frontispieces in each volume (1 double-page), 382 plates (137 in colour), of bindings, title-pages, plates reproductions, etc., gilt patterned endpapers, original tan polished morocco gilt by Kelly & Sons, a couple of minor bumps and some light scuffing, raised bands, spine and upper cover lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, remainder untrimmed, a nice set. A sumptuous production and a worthy monument to what was undoubtedly the finest collection of sporting books in the world, prior to its dispersal at auction 1939-46. Full collations are given for all works, even for such titles as 'The Sporting Magazine' and 'Annals of Sporting.' The Podeschi Mellon catalogue refers to it as a classic example of the sumptuous, old-style, privately produced bibliographical catalogue. Its anachronistic luxury is balanced by its practical bibliographical content, which is of high quality. Provenance: Herman Marx bookplate; Hugh Selbourne. Besterman, 5881; Howard-Hill I, 2197; Wells, 6826; Breslauer & Folter, 105. N° de ref. de la librería 34678
