 R.E. Egerton Warburton was an “ardent foxhunter [who] generally rode thoroughbred horses bred by himself, and amused himself and his friends by writing hunting songs for the Old Tarporley Club meetings."  The last few pages contain 45 notes, each with details about a specific poem he wrote.  240 pages with 45 Notes to the Hunting Songs at the back. The Introduction is an interesting history of the Tarporley Hunt. Pages In excellent condition with slight foxing on the outside edge of the book (not on top or bottom edge). Title page (below) shows the worst foxing with last page being comparable, other pages extremely clean. Nice dark marbled paper inside the covers, bindings tight. Inside cover has bookplate of Sir Peter Frederic Fleming, Leicester, Baronet.
