In issuing this new edition of Warburton's Hunting Songs, the publishers have tried to produce it in a form worthy of the place the book occupies in hunting literature, and they have been enabled to do this by the kindly aid they have received from the author's son, Piers Egerton-Warburton, Esq., to whom they tender their grateful thanks.
They desire also to thank the Committee of the Tarporley Hunt Club for permission to reproduce the portraits which adorn the walls of their Club-room. They also thank His Grace the Duke of Westminster for permission to reproduce two portraits; and the Right Hon. Lord Viscount Errington for allowing them to publish, for the first time, the interesting picture of the "Meet of the Cheshire Hounds at Hooton"; and also the Rev. Charles Slingsby, M. A., for the loan of the portrait of Sir Charles Slingsby.
By the kindness of Willoughby A. Pemberton, Esq., they have been enabled to publish a rare portrait of John Mytton; and H. E. Wilbraham, Esq., has allowed them to reproduce two of his family portraits.
