Since the 1700s, British periodicals devoted to field sports have been reporting developments in techniques, trends, legislation, conservation, and more. They therefore provide a detailed examination of the country’s rich and broad history of hunting, fishing, foxhunting, and related shooting sports.
British Sporting Periodicals: An Annotated Bibliography is the first comprehensive listing of all the periodicals on field sports produced in Great Britain up to 1950. Each title is described in detail, including publisher, place of publication, general content, format, frequency of issue, and publishing history. The book also includes many wonderful images of magazine covers and front pages, diagrams that trace various name changes and mergers, and a detailed timeline.
Exhaustively researched and carefully compiled, British Sporting Periodicals is a valuable reference tool for collectors, historians, and researchers of field sports.
