    The Sportsman [and:] The Sportsman and Veterinary Recorder. London: Joseph Pardon, August 1833-May 1834 and January 1835-April 1836. 3 volumes only, 8°, 26 engraved plates, a few coloured in (some heavy spotting and occasional tears to plates, some crease marks), non-uniform contemporary marbled boards, the first vol. backed in cloth, the two others in half calf (extremities worn).

    The title-page to vol. I of The Sportsman states that it includes the issues up to June, but as Schwerdt notes the June issue was in fact bound into volume II (not present here). Volumes I-II of The Sportsman and Veterinary Recorder are bound in two, but the second vol. also includes the January-April numbers of vol. III (though not the title or preliminaries). The 26 plates include one plate from vol. II of The Sportsman and 3 plates from vol. III of SVR. Cricket articles are included in May 1834 (p. 327), June 1835 (pp. 329-331, including "The Laws of Cricket"), and July and August 1835 (pp. 32, 107). Schwerdt II, p. 217; not in Padwick.
