Reprint of the very scarce first edition privately printed in London over the period 1928 to 1937. (Besterman 5881) About 3,000 items are carefully described including information on plates. Especially useful when collating periodicals such as The Sporting Magazine. The cost of this set was kept down by not reproducing the hundreds of full-page plates in the original printing of this reference work. This reprint edition is done in a larger format and with better reproductions of illustrations than the more recent reprint.
