1 Bedson, G. ('Grandad') The Notorious Poacher - Memoirs of an Old Poacher
Hindhead, Surrey SAIGA 1982 0904558975 / 9780904558975 Hard Cover Fine Very Good 
A Fine unmarked copy with VG+ dustjacket which has some fading. xii + 142 pages. 58 illustrations. This is the true account of the life of a poacher, based in North Staffordshire. It covers a period of around 50 years from boyhood to quite recent times. In perspective, poaching is shown as a product of the depression years although, obviously, the love of the countryside and the excitement of eluding gamekeepers and the law are important factors. The methods used for day and night-time poaching are all explained. The characters of the countryside - the good and the bad- are examined. Brushes with police and gamekeepers; the irony and the humour are all intertwined. Common myths and fallacies are criticized, and the author writes from experience, pulling no punches. Illustrated throughout with engravings taken from old books.
