First edition, collecting Trollope's writings on sports, all originally published in St Paul's Magazine from December 1867 to August 1868, here presented with a preface by Trollope specially written for this edition.

This copy is in the usual green cloth binding; Sadleir notes a rare violet-blue binding variant, possibly a freak, although as Trollope's own copy was so bound he gives it priority.
