    [Archery]. [Robin Hood, subject]. E. Hargrove. Anecdotes of Archery. York: Hargrove, 1792. First edition. Twelvemo. Contemporary half calf. Generally very good. Rare.

    Twelvemo. 104 pages. With two engraved plates and fold-out plate, "The Pedigree of Robin Hood." Contemporary half brown calf over marbled boards, spine ruled and lettered in gilt. Binding worn and browned, some text on rear board offset from another source. Hinges cracked, text toned, occasionally soiled and foxed, upper corner of page 11 missing (not affecting text). Still, a very good example of this rare book on archery and Robin Hood.

    From the collection of Pat and Michael York.
