M. Sponge's Sporting Tour by RS Surtees
Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1926. George Bayntun. Jorrock's Edition. Illustrated by John Leech.
"It was a murky October day that the hero of our tale, Mr Sponge, or Soapey Sponge, as his good-natured friends call him, was seen mizzling along Oxford Street, wending his way to the west." So begins the marvellous tale of Mr. Sponge, or rather the tales of the many characters which feature so vividly in this delightful volume. From the author of Handley Cross and many other sporting novels, this light-hearted romp through the countryside is a fine example of Surtees' craft.
