According to Rilings this is a true dictionary but mainly on the horse and dog: as used in “riding the hounds”. However, there is good material on shooting, game laws, cockfighting, coursing, etc. - but not angling. It is alleged that the author had an aversion to fishing. Much on the sport of horse racing.

Armorial bookplate of Henry Worcester Smith. [Obituary laid-in]

Harry Worcester Smith was born in 1865, a second-generation American of English descent. He was a successful businessman in the textile industry. He was a patent expert, perfecting over 30 patents.

Worcester Smith was a dedicated proponent of the American foxhound as a superior hunter to the traditional English hound. The point, debated at length, culminated in the “Great Hound Match of 1905,” a competition to lay the question to rest at last. Worcester Smith represented the American hounds, and Alexander Henry Higginson, Master of the Middlesex Hunt in Massachusetts, represented the English hounds a trial which lasted two weeks, each pack taking the field alternately. The match established Virginia as excellent hunting territory and several hunts were founded or moved to Virginia.

Smith started the Grafton Country Club with the desire to bring wholesome English outdoor life, riding, shooting and hunting to America. He was a champion four-in-hand driver. His horses “Sky-High” and “Sue Woodstock” won three National Horse Shows at Madison Square Garden. He took up steeple chasing in his thirties, winning the Genesee Valley Point.

Two-volume set is bound in later cloth covered boards with leather spine labels. The work on sporting and hunting with terms needed for the activity. The work is adorned with illustrated plates, mostly of horses. Both volumes feature sportsman on their horses with hound dogs on the frontispiece.

Mild to moderate age and wear to the exterior boards with minor soiling and rubbing. They have been rebound. Bindings tight and square. Text clean, light even toning. [no advert leaf in volume 2]
