A Later Printing. Contains: Black & white drawings; Frontispiece;

From the cover: So continuous has been the interest in lan Nialls The Poachers Handbook, published ten years ago, that his publishers felt they owed it to the poaching fraternity and others to ask the author to bring the book fully up to date.

The New Poachers Handbook, newly illustrated, provides a complete modern guide to the practice of the nefarious art. Sixteen fine drawings by S. J. Marston (who has done considerable field work on the subject with the author) help to make the book an admirable gift for anyone who loves the country. Whether it is a hare, a partridge, a pheasant, a trout or a salmon, lan Niall explains all the unorthodox ways of catching them, and makes frequent reference to the authority of such great masters of poaching as Little Hugh, Black Bill and Francie McGinn.

Very Good in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heavier tanning to the spine. Edges of the text block lightly spotted.

Black boards with Silver titling to the Spine. [XII] 155 pages. 8¾” x 5¾”.
