Fifty Years of Sport
Miller, E.D.

Miller, E.D. Fifty Years of Sport. NY: Dutton, n.d. [1925]. Fwd. by Sir Beauvoir de Lisle. 350p + many photos. Fair sturdy hardcover (covers faded, soiled; foxed). No d.j. ** Memoirs of sport and life in Britain, Africa, and India, with references to many noted contemporary horsemen throughout. Apparently sport included riding down Indian villages during a water shortage, which Miller recounts with some pride. He refers to Gandhi as a man who did "untold mischief." With much on polo and steeplechasing, subjects on which his opinions are sounder. (Not in Wells). (Item ID: 6908)
