This is a large format edition first published in a limited edition of 100 copies in 1891.  

In re-issuing this new impression we take the opportunity to give readers the pleasure of seeing the splendid print of Ginger Old English Game originally painted by Herbert Atkinson apparently for a calendar. 

The portraits of Old English Game depicted by the author have not been surpassed by any artists and therefore it is appropriate that they continue to be made available to enthusiasts who keep Old English Game Fowl (OEG)
