The Keen Foxhunter's Miscellany

by Peter Holt

The Keen Foxhunter's Miscellany Synopsis

The Keen Foxhunters Miscellany is an intriguing collection of hunting lore with three hundred and fifty entries covering all aspects of fox hunting from yesteryear to the present day. Filled with an abundance of fact, fiction and quirky tales, this is a well researched and entertaining title, which is easy to dip in and out of. Everything to do with fox hunting is here, including profiles of hunting eccentrics such as Mad Jack Mytton (who was so obsessed by his appearance that he owned 150 pairs of breeches) and Harry, Marquis of Hastings, whose tendency to arrive on the field two hours late and sozzled made his brief Mastership of the Quorn a disaster. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Keen Foxhunter's Miscellany Press Reviews

It's a really well researched book of some 200 pages... it should be savoured, dipped into constantly, whether for ones own amusement or to check a story before its retelling... It is the inclusion of these sorts of facts which make the book a 'must have' for any designers of hunting quizzes looking for new questions with which to confound their audience as it will provide them with both hours of amusement and pages of new material. This appealing anthology is set to become an essential addition to the library of keen foxunters everywhere. --Hounds magazine
