"Reprinted from the original edition of 1735, with a memoir of the author." One of the best-known works by this English poet, which tells the story of a "chase" as field sport (hunting), for which Somervile was an enthusiast. Features illustrations similar to cover depicting hunters atop their horses, with attendant dogs. A charming edition.
