by Peter Beckford, Esq.
Thoughts on Hunting is the all-time classic of the hunt. It has been printed and reprinted many times since its original publication in 18th century England. Beckford manages to thoroughly capture the adventure of the hunt and provide insightful reflections upon it. One of the most significant contributions to sporting literature, it belongs on every sportsman's bookshelf.
Peter Beckford, Esq., was born in 1740. He was a great sportsman and famous master of foxhounds, and he was the first English writer to give a full and accurate description of the whole system of the sport of hunting. He died in England in 1811.
