Sporting Scenes in South Africa

First published in London in 1858, and includes illustrations in color by Harrison Weir. A second edition was published in 1860 with new black and white illustrations by J. Wolf.

I own an 1858 first edition with the Weir color illustrations, in original binding, but recased. I also own a rebound 1858 first edition, but with the Wolf black and white illustrations instead of the Weir color illustrations. The copy below is not in my collection.

This is a very scarce book.

My friend Nick Hodson created a free ebook version available at Project Gutenberg.
