Shipping to United States: Free

Nimrod (Charles Apperley) was born in 1779 and this, his most famous book, is a fascinating and faithful account of life among the Regency fox-hunting men, who rode to hounds six days per week and quoted Horace to each other as they took their fences. Their world may be as dead as the Ddo, but through Apperley’s book we may breathe again the spacious air of those days and take part in all the varied country activities that every English gentleman one hundred and fifty years ago believed to be his natural prerogative.’ Nimrod died in 1843 and this book was first published in 1832; this edition was published in 1948 by John Lehmann Ltd in Great Britain. Dust cover has been well-protected by a clear plastic sheet cover, inside pages are in excellent condition with a few dog-eared pages and some yellowing with age. Hardcover with 384 pages, this is the 25th item in the Chiltern Library collection (out of 32).
