Fores's Sporting Notes & Sketches

Darvill's Rare Prints is pleased to offer a huge selection of antique lithographs from
"Fores's Sporting Notes & Sketches, a Quarterly Magazine Descriptive of British, Indian, Colonial, and Foreign Sport."

These antique prints are from Fores's Sporting Notes and Sketches, an English quarterly magazine
published from 1884 through the early 1900s. It contained articles and stories about sports
at home and abroad, including equestrian, sailing, hunting, fishing, golf, and many others.
Please refer to the Sporting Prints page for a list of the available categories.
Each issue included eight-full page duotoned lithographs.

It should be noted that these are not modern reproductions,
as many are selling these days.
