A wonderful example of one of Robert Baden Powell's early works. This is a very rare 1st edition of Pigsticking - Dated 1889.
Written when B-P was Capt. RSS Baden Powell was serving in South Africa in the 13th Hussars, the book is 'A Complete Account for Sportsmen & others'.
The book contains 211 pages and includes 25 illustrations - All of which are present and retain their protective tissue sheets. The pages are rough cut and have a gilt edging along the top edge.The illustrated hardbacked covers are still bright with minimal wear.The first and last two or three pages have some brown marks to them but the remainder of the pages are very clean for their age.
This book remains tightly bound and is in remarkable condition for its 124 years.
These early works of Baden Powell are extremely hard to find, and, even more difficult to acquire in this condition..............
