Number 48 of a limited edition of 250 copies.  ‘A sumptuous rendering of south Asia’s wild game species in art and text.  Lydekker describes more than seventy varieties of game with attendant notes on sport from the experiences of Demidoff, Darrah, Valentine, and others.  The hand-colored plates are especially striking.  Quite scarce as only 250 copies were printed and signed by Rowland Ward’ (Czech). 

The delightful plates depict, inter alia, an Indian elephant, rhinoceros, gazelles, deer, an Indian lion, a Bengal tiger, leopards, pandas, and bears.
