A splendid sporting story, first published in Tranquillity Revisited. It is estimated that 100 to 200 copies were printed of this rare little Xmas keepsake for Colonel Wood King. RARE. “So very rare that I have only seen two copies offered for sale in all my years …” (Frazier).

Frank Lowe was the general manager of the Derrydale Press and his copies are almost invariably in superior condition.
