London, Bradbury, Agnew and Co., [undated later editions, circa 1890s]. Octavo, six volumes, with numerous illustrations and dozens of hand-coloured steel engravings by John Leech, H.K. Browne and W.T. Maud. Three-quarter red morocco by J. & E. Bumpus Ltd; marbled sides ruled in gilt; spines gilt in compartments, with gilt-tooled hunting motifs; raised bands; all edges gilt. Spines a little faded; a few corner-tips slightly worn; half-title and flyleaf of 'Handley Cross' offset; endpapers slightly offset; an excellent and extremely attractive group.
