In the words of Major Guy Paget. "Lionel Edwards is a landscape painter in the very top class, worthy to rank with any of the 19th century. He can paint the Hunt scurry as good and life-like as Ferneley, on a background worthy of Birket Foster..He has only to see a Hunt gallop once across his landscape to produce a dozen recognizable portraits of the men and their hunters,"iQuarter leather to complementary cloth; spine title stamped in gilt. Top edge gilt; Silk place-holder ribbon. Spine nicely age-toned; faint minor spots near fore-edge of front board. Bindings tight and square. Text clean, light even toning. Minimal handling wear.
