  WRINKLES: OR, HINTS TO SPORTSMEN AND TRA FELLERS , (Equipment, an& Camp Htft. BY THE OLD SHEKARRY, AUTHOR OF THE KOREST AND THE FIELD, ETC. A NEW EDITION, FULLY ILLUSTRATED. CHATTO AND WINDUS, PUBLISHERS. 1874.  LONDON : SAVILL, EDWARDS AND CO., PRINTERS, CHANDOS STHEKT, COVEMT GARDEN.  INTRODUCTION. HAVING been often applied to for information concerning the most suitable Dress, the most efficient Arms, and the best equipment for a Sportsman, I have endeavoured, in the follow- ing pages, to concentrate my ideas on these points for the benefit of the uninitiated. I have also added a description of the different modes of hunting the fiercer denizens of the Forest, and sundry practical hints upon travel- ling and campaigning, that may be useful to those who have not yetacquired that expe- rienceof camp-life, without which, in a wild and almost unknown country, peopled by treacherous tribes, the Traveller will have much difficulty in keeping bis health sound and his skin whole.  CONTENTS.
