How it works


The most enduring and famous of all Rowland Ward's publications is his Records of Big Game. The first edition published in 1892 was entitled Horn Measurements and Weights of the Great Game of the World. It was revised and reprinted in 1894, but the second edition, which was published only four years after the first, had two-and-a-half times the number of pages as the first. The second edition was entitled Rowland Ward's Records of Big Game, and it is this title that has been used ever since.

ix, 264 + 2 pages publishers adverts, 4 full page sepia photographic plates, numerous black and white illustrations, black and white photographs, tables with 2 errata slips (front and rear).

spine has been rebacked with leather and gilt titling with original brown boards.
