First published in 1924, "Hunting Lays and Hunting Ways" is an extensive collection of poetry connected through the common theme of hunting. Masterfully encapsulating the various elements of hunting, these carefully-selected poems are highly recommended for those with a keen interest in this rural sport. Contents include: "How the Huntsman shoulde go Drawing with his Hounde", "The Harbourer", "The Scottish Hunt", "Brow, Bay, and Tray", "The Old Pack", "A Midsummer-Night's Dream", "The Tufters", "A Song of Exmoor", "On Stags' Howns", "Exmoor", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on fox hunting.
