1 Schwerdt, C.F.G.R. Hunting, Hawking, Shooting, Illustrated in a Catalogue of Books, Manuscripts, Prints and Drawings (4 Volumes)
London Privately printed for the author by Waterlow & Sons Limited 1928 First Limited Edition Half Morocco Very Good 
No. 151 of 300 copies signed by Schwerdt, with all the plates used destroyed (thus later printings are quite different). Folio sized, 13 by 10", 33 by 25 cm. Bound by Kelly & Sons, London. 138 color plates, some double and/or folding plates, and a total of 382 plates in the four volumes. One of the most beautiful bibliographies ever produced, and a definitive bibliography (up to that time) of the subjects covered. Green morocco has shelfwear and rubbing along joints and corners. Volume 1 shows the most wear on the spine, with scuff marks. Still the bindings remain handsome and imposing. Generally clean and tight within. 
Price: 5750.00 USD
