A New Edition with illustrations (some in colour) by P. Chenevix Trench. London: Arnold, 1897. Small quarto. pp. xvii, 306. Contemporary half red morocco on red linen boards; spine divided into six panels by five gilt raised bands; title, author and year in gilt direct in the second, fourth and sixth, the remainder tooled in gilt with fish, hare, bird and boat; red and gold endbands; marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Mild foxing to endpapers. A fine copy.

This work contains lively descriptions of travel in search of sport, chiefly angling, in the West of Ireland, interspersed with interesting and amusing anecdotes illustrating the character of the people and the history of the districts visited. The illustrations admirably catch the spirit of the work, which forms one of the most entertaining accounts of sport ever published.
