The writer made it widely known that he would be glad to get the measurements of any good trophies obtained in Ceylon, to be recorded in this little book, but very few sportsmen responded to his request. The measurements received, some of which are very meagre, are tabulated below.

The writer would be very pleased to receive further measurements of Ceylon trophies to be given in the second edition of this book, should one be called for. Full measurements should be given, according to statements below :-
