Oriental Field Sports; Being a Complete, Detailed, and Accurate Description of the Wild Sports of the East, by Captain Thomas Williamson

This is complete with 40 color tinted copper plate engravings by Samuel Howett. First edition printed for Edward Orme, London, 1807. Large oblong Folio, 14" x 19" x 1 ". 150 Pages with 40 superb full age color engravings of exciting, dynamic hunting and sporting scenes of the period. This magnificent book gave a rapt British public its first look at one of the most exotic, mysterious, and beautiful places on earth and it is little wonder indeed that youngsters exposed to such a visual treat would grow up anxious to serve in a military that provided a chance to see such places first hand. A first edition of this extraordinarily rare book would run $15,000-$20,000. This edition limited to a total of 350 copies published by Anthony Atha, Norfolk, 1984. Spectacularly impressive addition to library or gun room.
