Originally published in 1899. This fascinating works is a look into the history of the Belvoir Hunt, which is in part the story of the rise of fox hunting as a national sport. The Belvoir Hunt has been fortunate in that it has been carried on by so remarkable a succession of able men. During the whole period covered by this book members of the Manners family have guided the fortunes of the hunt, and have exercised a wide social and political influence over the hunt territory. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
