Gamekeeping - An Illustrated History is a fascinating and comprehensive book on the history of gamekeeping from the inception of the profession in the late seventeenth century to the present day. Covering all aspects of the history of gamekeeping it not only contains a large selection of historic illustrations depicting the gamekeeper's work but also draws on oral and written testimonies from gamekeepers collected by the author.
Gamekeeping - An Illustrated History provides a unique insight into gamekeeping and has been written in order to provide an accurate record of gamekeeping in times past, something often neglected by other authors who have painted a much rosier picture of the gamekeeper's life in bygone days, rather than a truthful one based on hard facts.
David S D Jones has been an archivist and historian for the National Gamekeepers' Organisation for over a decade and has written extensively on the subject of gamekeeping over the past thirty years, contributing numerous articles to all of the major British sporting titles. In addition, he owns the Gamekeeping Photographic Archive and the David S D Jones Photographic Collection. He is the author of the widely acclaimed Sporting Estates of the Outer Hebrides - Past and Present and Sporting Lodges (978-1-84689-168-7) with J C Jeremy Hobson.
