Gordon Grand was a successful businessman in upstate New York and eventually became the Master of Foxhounds of the Millbrook Hunt Club in Millbrook, New York. He published his first foxhunting-related story in 1932 and was encouraged to write more professionally by a helpful editor. His foxhunting fiction has been widely praised as the best in the genre. This is a beautiful four-volume matched set of Gordon Grand's work. Red leather covers with gilt illustration to fronts, lettering to spines. "The Southborough Fox and Other Colonel Weatherford Stories" (New York, 1939), signed by the author at half-title page, illustrated in black-and-white by Eleanor Iselin Mason, light half-toning to edges, protected by Mylar cover, slight staining to bottom edges of front endpapers, 239 pp. Remaining three volumes published by Derrydale in Lyon, Mississippi, 1991, each with illustrated endpapers and gilt stain to three edges. All appear unread. Titles include: "Colonel Weatherford's Young Entry," illustrated by Paul Brown, 214 pp.; "Colonel Weatherford and His Friends," with drawings by J. Alden Twachtman, 242 pp.; and ?Old Man and Other Colonel Weatherford Stories,? with full-color illustrations by William J. Hays, 239 pp. Overall, a lovely start on a collector's library of important foxhunting fiction. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
