Testimonials

“I want to let you know that the William Blew "History of Steeple-chasing" arrived safely in today's post. It is truly everything that I expected and more. The book arrived in good sound condition and all the color plates, which you said, were also in fine condition. I can't thank you enough for the highly professional service you gave to me. I hope that we may work together again in the future. Again, my thanks and very best wishes.”

“ The book arrived promptly and was beautifully wrapped in tissue paper. The outer cardboard packaging was stout and prevented any damage in transit. I am very pleased with my purchase which is to be a present for my Aunt. She will be absolutely delighted with the book and I have no hesitation in recommending this seller. A very positive experience.”
- Belinda Warren.

About this title:

First edition. - "Consciously or unconsciously, Herr Schillings has followed in the footsteps of Mr. Edward North Buxton, who was the first sportsman of repute having the courage to stand up before a snobbish public and proclaim that the best sport for a man of cultivated mind is the snapshotting with the camera (with or without the telephotographic lens), rather than the pumping of lead into elephants, rhinoceroses, antelopes, zebras, and many other harmless, beautiful, or rare beasts and birds" (Introduction). "The author was a pioneer in night photography" (Czech p.143). 782 pages.
