GIR, SRI MOHANT JAI RAM Rules on Shooting, or Useful Instruction on Shooting, Vol. I [all published].
Allahabad: Railway Service Press, 1885. First edition. Publisher's printed paper wrappers. 9 1/2 x 6 1/4 inches;  pp.; 13 plates. Backstrip renewed, wrappers with marginal toning, scattered foxing throughout.
Very rare. "With a text written in Hindi and English, this how-to guide for beginning sportsmen to arrange driven tiger shoots was probably written for sportsmen of the wealthy Indian upper caste. Instructions include the arrangement of the drive, shooting from a howdah and from a machan, with additional information on securing trophies. A quite scarce work" (Czech). No auction records traced since 1948 and only two copies listed in WorldCat. Czech, Asia, p. 86.
