The Compleat Marksman: or The True Art of Shooting-Flying. London: S. Smith, 1759. 8° (some spotting, small stain on C4), brown half morocco by Bayntun Riviere, spine gilt.

FIRST EDITION. "An amusing poem on the preparation for a day's walking up with pointers, largely a plagiarism of Markland", writes Chute, "but more charming". ESTC lists only three copies, that in the BL being the one recorded copy in Britain or Ireland. Chute 126: "exceedingly rare"; this edition not in Schwerdt.
