Original three-quarter brown morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards, black leather spine labels with gilt lettering and rules, t.e.g., marbled endpapers, binding signed by James MacDonald. Small label of the Sporting Gallery and Bookshop. AN ABSOLUTELY PRISTINE COPY, IN THE ORIGINAL DERRYDALE BOX (worn). Crimson morocco backed drop box stamped in gilt, by European Bookbinders.

Inscribed on the half-title: “For Dr. Shepard Krech / Good Ducks--& Good Shooting / Roland Clark / X-11-38”. Rare in any event, and especially so in the original box, which Frazier does not illustrate and apparently had not seen, noting only that “Siegel states that the Deluxe edition is boxed.” Siegel also writes: “Roland Clark's Etchings is one of the finest works produced on an American sporting artist.” A gem copy of a superb book, the largest of the Derrydales.
