“I want to let you know that the William Blew "History of Steeple-chasing" arrived safely in today's post. It is truly everything that I expected and more. The book arrived in good sound condition and all the color plates, which you said, were also in fine condition. I can't thank you enough for the highly professional service you gave to me. I hope that we may work together again in the future. Again, my thanks and very best wishes.”

“ The book arrived promptly and was beautifully wrapped in tissue paper. The outer cardboard packaging was stout and prevented any damage in transit. I am very pleased with my purchase which is to be a present for my Aunt. She will be absolutely delighted with the book and I have no hesitation in recommending this seller. A very positive experience.”

About this title: Interesting stories about wild animals and their habitats. A very beautiful book, many illustrations and plates throughout text. "This little book...aims to do two things: first, to show some of the unrecorded facts of animal life exactly as i have seen them; and second, to reproduce as far as possible the spirit of the place and the hour, and to let you also feel something of that gladness and peace which I have always found in the silent places" (From author`s preface).
