Mr. Sponge's Sporting Tour
Lieferbar innerhalb von 2-3 Tagen
BeschreibungOriginally published in 1853, this is Surtees' great comedic hunting novel. Delightfully illustrated throughout with pen-and-ink sketches, it follows the misadventures of the ghastly Mr Sponge in the hunting field. Still very amusing after all this time, there are many 'hunting types' described that are easily recogniseable today. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
