This is Nicholas Storey’s third book in the series, following History of Men’s Fashion: What The Well Dressed Man Is Wearing (2008), and History of Men’s Accessories: A Short Guide For Men About Town (2011) and is called History of the Sporting Life: A Short Guide to Some Sports and Pursuits For The Man of The World. This book, also with historical and social background, covers: the conduct of sporting events, including recommendations for a selection of sporting equipment, being all the necessary equipment for: shooting, fishing, hunting, tennis, badminton, squash and golf; something of members’ sports’ clubs; town and country living; town and country national and international sporting and social events and festivals; road, rail and sea travel; as well as exciting or unusual Christmas holiday destinations. In line with the first two books, this one is also packed with quirky facts and interesting digressions; including an account of the peculiar facts surrounding the last recorded civilian duel in England; a sketch of the life and death of Regency figure Robert ‘Curricle’ Coates; even how to build a rose garden; to all of which is once more brought a humorous approach. World experts on the technicalities of certain topics covered have again been sought out to check over the draft to ensure that this book is not just amusing but soundly backed by authority. The book ends with an account of a memorable night spent in London.
