Limited to an edition of 1950 copies, this being out of series. It is signed by illustrator Randy Jones, whose bawdy pen-and-ink drawings are scattered through the book. Original etching has been laid-in. Text is usually attributed to Jonathan Badcock, one of the foremost sporting journalist during the early 1800s. The authorship is thoroughly discussed in Plimpton's Foreword. Leather is lightly rubbed in places along the spine, slipcase also has light wear along edges.
