Short stories of hunting, racing, horse trading, and romance, first published in magazines and small books in 1897-1910. Includes one golf story. The stories seem to be based in the Genesee Valley, where Gray hunted. A.H. Higginson called them "the best picture of the American hunting field that had ever been produced up to that time." In the 1940s Gray served as ambassador to Ireland. This was Paul Brown's first Derrydale book, and his first book of sporting illustrations. Shipping/handling will be extra for this set; please keep this in mind when ordering.

Price: $100.00
