This auction is for a reprint of the classic Indian hunting, military and pigsticking book 'My Sketch Book In The Shiny' by Snaffles. This is in its original format and size (9 x 12 inches). All the plates, prints and drawings from the original publication in 1930 are shown. Paper colour has been changed slightly to to a yellow, the paper is of very good quality and very stiff. almost card. Print quality is good. Condition of these books is brand new and is a hardback. This has to be a great opportunity to obtain a rare publication in a modern printing. It is unavailable at retail, it was published in India on behalf of Directorate General of Artillery Army Headquarters, New Delhi. These ones come direct from that source and are the only copies remaining. The print run I gather (but cannot be sure) was 2,000 (very small). The original version usually sells for between £125 - £250.
