How it works

Register

Woodyatt devotes nearly one-third of this work to tiger hunting with mention of the Dehra Doon, Kumaon and Nepal. His initial chapter introduces famous English and Indian tiger hunters, including Sir Henry Ramsay who may have shot "several hundreds." Additionally, he provides chapters on panther, bear hunting in Chanda, burhel, thar, markhor and other game. Well illustrated with photo plates.

Original olive cloth with titles in black on spine and front cover. Original endpapers age tanned but firm. Bottom corners lightly frayed. A clean, tight copy.
