London Downey & Co. 1899 New Edition Hardcover Very Good- 4to 11" - 13" tall 
238 pages; Beautifully illustrated with engraved titlepage and twenty full page colour plates by Henry Alken with captioned tissue guards. Contents near fine - clean and tight in contemporary binding of three-quarter dark brown morocco over pale green & cream marbled boards with marbled endpapers. Five raised bands at spine with gilt lettering and decorative gilt devices depicting foxhunting horns and whips. Leather chipped at head of spine; hinges secure, but leather cracking along edges of spine. A still attractive volume; requires careful handling. Charles James Apperley (1777–1843), English sportsman and sporting writer, who published under the pseudonym "Nimrod." Apperley attended Rugby School, then served with the Ancient British Light Dragoons in Ireland. He settled in Warwickshire, where he devoted himself to fox-hunting. Facing financial difficulties, Apperley began to contribute a series of articles to The Sporting Magazine under the pseudonym of "Nimrod", covering horse races, hunt meets and other sporting events. His amusing articles filled with characterizations of the people he knew or met at such events contributed to doubling the circulation of the magazine within a few years. Mr. Pittman, the proprietor of The Sporting Magazine, gave Nimrod a handsome salary and defrayed all the expenses of his tours. He also gave Nimrod a stud of hunters. After Pittman's death, the proprietors of the magazine sued Apperley for the money that had been advanced. To avoid imprisonment, Apperley moved to Calais in 1830, where he supported himself by writing. Apperley is best known for his two books, The Life of a Sportsman, and the one offerred here Memoirs of the Life of John Mytton, both of which were illustrated with coloured engravings by Henry Thomas Alken (1785 –1851). Alken, also an avid sportsman, was an English painter and engraver chiefly known as a caricaturist and illustrator of sporting subjects and coaching scenes. His earliest productions were published anonymously under the signature of "Ben Tallyho", but from 1816 until about 1831, he produced under his own name many sets of etchings of sporting subjects mostly coloured and sometimes humorous in character.

THE STATES THROUGH IRISH EYES - Autographed Limited Edition, Somerville, E. Oe. ; [SIGNED]
20 Somerville, E. Oe. ; [SIGNED] THE STATES THROUGH IRISH EYES - Autographed Limited Edition
Boston Houghton Mifflin Co 1930 First Edition Hardcover Fine Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall Signed by Author
Autograph; 200 pages; One of an Autographed Limited Edition of 375 (of which only 350 were for sale). Clean and tight in original red linen binding with gilt bordering to the front board and gilt lettering at spine; pages unopened after page 90, unmarked throughout. OCLC: 54791259 Wonderful frontispiece (two hounds watching as their master head down the drive in an automobile) and seven full page plates (foxhunting scenes, etc.) by the author and charming vignette illustrations (chapter headings) throughout. Daughters of land-owning Protestant families in the South West of Ireland in the mid-nineteenth century, the cousins Edith Œnone Somerville and Violet Martin (Martin Ross), wrote novels and short stories which displayed wonderful skills of observation and humour in detailing the social and political conditions in Ireland during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, including the Irish R.M. tales, the novel The Real Charlotte, and many more. Even after Ross's death in 1915, Somerville continued to credit her inpublications, claiming they continued their collaboration via spiritual communication and automatic writing. This account of Edith Somerville's experiences on a visit to the United States is one of the few that she published without referencing Martin Ross as a co-author. Somerville was a devoted sportswoman and became master of the West Carbery Foxhounds in 1903. In this account of her initial visit to the southern states, New England and New York City, Somerville notes many similarities between the Irish big house and the American southern plantation, e.g., riding to the hounds, architecture, landscaping and the manners of servants in the homes she visits. Somerville was also active in the suffragist movement. ; Signed by Author
