This was one of the books I found on the bookshelves of 'The Warren House' (a Landmark Trust property) on a recent weekend away. Nathaniel Dale worked on the Kimbolton Castle estate for two periods during the C19, at one time being responsible for bringing the rabbit population down to manageable proportions, so has direct connections with The Warren House, or at least with the rabbits that used to live in the environs, and the castle it overlooks. From the publisher's notes: It was a fascinating read because of Nathaniel Dale's connection with the place we were staying, although at times a little confusing as the anecdotes and biographical details are somewhat disjointed. I certainly learned more than I thought possible from this book, and others provided, about the management of rabbits kept for food and fur in artificial warrens during past times.
