The Schwerdt Collection; Catalogue of the Renowned Collection of Books, Manuscripts, Prints & Drawings relating to Hunting, Hawking and Shooting formed by the late C.F.G.R. Schwerdt, Esq.

London: Sotheby & Co., 1939-1946. First edition. Soft cover. Complete in 6 volumes. Portions 1-4 were published in 1939, and the others in 1946 after the war. Variously paged (hundreds of items), many plates (many folding). Very good (light handling wear). Item #30601

If you don't have the space or the strength to handle the massive limited-edition catalogue, or don't care for the reduced quasi-facsimile, these auction catalogues are a great alternative for sporting book reference. Portions 1-4 contain many detailed entries, akin to the original catalogue. Portions 5 and 6 are slimmer, and the entries are usually shorter.

Price: $200.00
