How it works


An officer in the Royal Navy, Cradock details his sporting adventures along the Chinese, Siberian and Japanese coasts during his service in the region. Most of the sport revolves around waterfowl and upland game, though the author managed to bag a tiger on the Russian coast while armed only with a shotgun. A brother officer, Lt. Dayrell Davies, provides a chapter on hunting rhinoceros, wild boar and several deer species on Borneo and neighboring islands. Original blue-gray pictorial cloth, beveled edges. Minor fraying to spine ends, rubbing to edges. Original pale yellow endpapers. Illustrated with full page plates and maps.
