The Unwritten Laws of Foxhunting - With Notes on the Use of Horn and Whistle and a List of Five Thousand Names of Hounds (History of Hunting)
The Unwritten Laws of Foxhunting - With Notes on The Use of The Horn And The Whistle And A List of Five Thousand Names of Hounds. By C.F.P. McNeill, M.F.H. This extremely scarce and unusual little book was first published in London at the turn of the 19th century. Its author intended it to be of benefit. " to those with a lamentable amount of ignorance with regard to what you may do and what you may not do out hunting." Its contents remain as relevant to foxhunting today as that of yesteryear. Read Country Books have now re-published this book using the original text in its entirety as part of their History of Hunting series. Its 48 pages contain much pertinent advice on the following :- Etiquette of following a Fox into adjoining Country. - Etiquette of following a fresh Fox found in an adjoining Country. - Duty of Newcomer.- Speaking to a Huntsman. - Cub-Hunting a private matter. - Neutral Countries. - Walking Puppies. - Coming to the Meet. - Second Horsemen. - Lord Willoughby de Broke's letter on Cub-Hunting. - Moving of Cubs. - Taking Hounds Home. - Covert Owners. - Advertising Meets. - Where Hounds belong to Trustees. - Master's Resignation. - Stud Hounds and their Use. - The Horn. - The Whistle. A concluding chapter lists 5000 Names of Hounds. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. Read Country Books are reprinting these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions. These editions are republished using the original text and artwork.
