FULL REVELATIONS OF A PROFESSIONAL RAT-CATCHER

After 25 years' experience.

This is a facsimile reproduction of a book first published in 1898. At that time the magazine The Field said it was 'honestly related in his (Ike Matthews) own language, without any attempt at bookmaking or pilfering from the works of others . . . The habits and instincts of the rats are very graphically described in the quaint language of the writer, and the chapter on the life of a rat-catcher is more interesting than many fictions. His description of the capturing of rats wholesale for the supply of rat-coursing meetings is very graphic. He then adds an account of the sport.' At the end of the hook are some fascinating 'Author's notes' in which he offers his services including obtaining 'any number of live rats and rabbits at a few days' notice'!
