Not for sale, from our own collection. I am listing this in the hope of finding out more about its illustrator. Wonderful swift sketches of horses in the field and stable, this essay on the hunt begins quoting Jorrocks and ends with English, "May you hunt forever." Several pages are addressed to women riders. Lovely paper and coloration. This book is available  from archive.com in Kindle, with not quite the same ambiance! In French, its original language. A copy, inscribed in 1916, exists as a contribution to the biodiversity library by the Webster Family Library of Veterinary Medicine (archive.org) Veterinary Library's copy part of the John A. Seaverns Equine Collection. Additional jpgs available.

B. V. or V, B. [B. de Vangeland?]

I have two framed coloured pen & ink sketches on card, signed b.v showing the Pau Hunt with a Mrs Forbes-Morgan & a Mr. Potter - cant read the rest because the backing paper has been partially removed on one and totally on the other.

I am interested in selling them and was thinking of putting them on ~Ebay

If they are of any interest to you let me know.

Regards,

Nita

Dear Nita, I have no access to your email unless you contact me (see contact below) I would not know how to place a value on these pictures, but let me know if you are putting them on Ebay. Interesting to know that sketches of his exist.
Thank you for writing, I have been curious about this book for years. Suzanne
