Excerpt from Fox Hunting: A Treatise by the Right Hon. the Earl of Kilreynard I who have compiled these writings am innocent of any intention to defraud in offering them to a confiding and, I hope, forgiving section of lovers of English literature. If anyone is to blame for their publication, it is a friend who has himself written a book and has, time after time, emerged unscathed from a publisher's office. This friend has assured me that "Kilreynard on Fox Hunting" would have a monetary value provided that the outer coverings were made sufficiently attractive to compensate the buyer for what he is likely to find within. To this end I have devoted the best of my days, and, with an apology to Mr. Punch's College of Arms, I leave it to the kind reader to say whether or not the result is eminently satisfactory. The life-like portraits with which the treatise is embellished have not met with the unqualified approval of the celebrities they so strikingly represent. The danger and difficulty that an artist has to contend against in illustrating historical works of this kind can only be appreciated by those who try it. Criticism has been not only adverse, but varied. In no single instance is a portrait admitted to be in the least like.
