This vintage book contains a historical account of the Billesdon Hunt, being a chronicle of notable runs and incidents of the chase with information on prominent members, celebrated hunters and hounds, and amusing stories and anecdotes.

Contents include: "Biographical Sketch of WM. Ward Tailby, Esq., J.P., D.L.," "The Original Quorn Country," "List of Foxes Killed, Season 1857-58," "Resume of the Season," "Resume of Cub Hunting," "THE Run of the Four Seasons," "Season 1858-59, Resume (April 1st)," "Very Early Litter of Cubs," etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.
