Overview

INTRODUCTION: In undertaking to write a memoir of the late Sir Victoria Brooke, coupled with extracts from his letters and diaries relating to travel and sporting adventures, I have not been actuated by the feeling that I possess any special qualification for the task, except that of intimate friendship extending over twenty years...... This early works also contains a chapter on his researches in Natural History and is a fascinating novel of the period. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
