THE F.S.A. De LUX GAME BOOK
This game book is designed for the serious record keeper and is very suitable as an Estate Book; it is quite large at 15″ x 11″ and made by our talanted Book Binder who was trained by the National Trust. We offer two forms of this book – the STANDARD version which is plainer and has half the pages of the PREMIUM version.
The Standard book has 52 pages with two annual total pages at the front, the Premium has 104 pages and 3 annual total pages at the front. These “annual total pages” allow for the accumulation of separate annual records for perhaps an estate and allow a separate a page(s) for personal annual records. As the Premium book has space for over 500 days shooting these totals might accrue over many years so we have allowed plenty of space.
The Premium has rather more gold lining on the outside and speckled edges to the pages. Both books have a nice wide maroon page marker ribbon and our price includes gold blocking on the front, the normal choices are initials over “Game Book” or just the name of the property or initials over the name of the property, dates etc are also possible.
Both books are half bound that is they have a dark green heavy duty cloth body with contrasting maroon morocco leather spine and corners, these are gold lined. Inside the covers there are ornate marbled end papers in green, gold and red, this adds a nice feel to these luxury books.
The heavyweight pages are made from 2oo gram Soperton which is made for use with either ball point or fountain pen. Each diary page has a wide horizontal line for each day and there are 10 of these lines to each page, without making it complicated I think we have given plenty of space for each important item.
Rather than repeating myself, the photos underneath will show the columns to record the important information, but I should point out that on the left page there are 3 horizontal lines to record your host, property and beat; 5 extra empty vertical columns for buffalo, doves, reeves pheasants or whatever takes your fancy. On the right page there is a wide space with 3 horizontal lines for the names of guns.
Probably the most important part of a Game Book is the area available for the description of the days sport and I have given 3 separate lines, totalling over 30″ to this end.
Perhaps the most interesting feature of these books is the double line that runs through most of the left hand page, the reason for this double line is to allow the owner of the book to record his personal daily score underneath the party’s score on the line above, that is if you are interested in this aspect.

THE de lux VISITORS BOOK.
We have recently started to make a fine quality half bound visitors book using the same materials and the same Bookbinder as we use for the de lux Game Book, the 15″ x 11″ stiff covers are the same as the game book – a nice dark green cloth with a maroon leather spine and the corners each have understated gold lining.
There are 52 pages ( 104 sides ) of plain, high quality white paper in the traditional fashion with no lines , we use the same marbled green, gold and red end papers and of course there is a maroon page marker ribbon.
We include in the cost the gold blocking of a name on the front or perhaps you prefer just ” Visitors Book “.
