A Bibliography of American Sporting Books 1926-1985, Biscotti, M. L.
12 Biscotti, M. L. A Bibliography of American Sporting Books 1926-1985
Far Hills, NJ Meadow Run Press 1997 1886967067 / 9781886967069 First Edition Hard Cover New No Jacket: As Issued Limited Edition 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
ix, 573 pp. New, still sealed in shrink wrap, as issued in slipcase. One of 1000 copies. From its founding at the residence of Theodore Roosevelt in 1887, one of the primary goals of the Boone and Crockett Club has been to disseminate information about wilderness areas and the wild game that inhabits those spaces. Through their own publications, and very selectively through approved works of other publishers, the Boone and Crockett Club has and continues to realize the vision of its founders, here most recently with A Bibliography of American Sporting Books by M. L. Biscotti. We are very proud to say that this is only the sixth book so approved during the entire one hundred and ten year history of the club. Sharing its title with the pioneering work by John C. Phillips, also a Boone and Crockett Club approved book, A Bibliography of American Sporting Books continues the work of its predecessor in compiling all the important sporting books published in America from 1926 to 1985. The focus is clearly on birds and mammals with angling works appearing tangentially. This is a work of great importance as now the reading sportsman as well as researchers have an invaluable and essential resource. Arranged alphabetically by author, the book is completely indexed by title as well which facilitates easy and rapid use as a quick reference and provides the framework for more leisurely investigation into general subjects, authors and titles. The author is widely considered an authority on the bibliographic aspects of sporting books and a more thorough, accurate and complete examination of this subject is unimaginable. This is the author’s magnum opus and we are thrilled to be part of it. This book will be the standard reference for many years to come.
