PREFACE.

In the following pages I have endeavoured to supply a want which became apparent to me when first I tried my hand at game preserving, and I trust that this volume, though obviously incomplete, will assist others to avoid the many stumbling-blocks incidental to the breeding, rearing, and maintenance of a head of game.

My self-imposed task of providing a manual for the tyro has been a pleasant one, and I hope that the book, besides assisting, and perhaps guiding, those engaged in the preservation of game, will furnish inducements to its

readers to become amateur gamekeepers.

WILLIAM Carnegie.
