Book of the Month
Traditionally, November marks the start of the hunting season and so this month we feature Handley Cross, a nineteenth century comic classic that centres on the adventures of John Jorrocks, an eccentric grocer turned Master of Fox Hounds. Written by R. S. Surtees, this entertaining satire is a 'noisy, vital book' full of zest and high spirits. Coloured steel engravings and woodcuts by the renowned Victorian book illustrator, John Leech, enliven this edition.
