Few photos and one very charming, peaceful art reproduction signed by Lewis Cohen of a gentleman with his hat, coat, and pipe in a long boat with his line in the water waiting patiently. From the Preface: In the following pages Mr. Wheeley gives a practical account of the modern methods of taking coarse fish, with special reference to the Thames. The chapters on perch and pike have been included to render the work complete, though a later volume of the Library, contributed by Mr. A. Jardine deals exclusively with those fish. The flounder though ostensibly, a sea-fish, finds appropriate place in any work on river, particularly tidal, fishing; and the concluding chapters on Thames trout gives the latest methods - practically coarse-fishing - of taking that remarkable fish. The Editors have to acknowledge some assistance in connection with the illustrations, their thanks being more particularly due to Messrs. Allcock and Bartleet of Reddich, Cummins of Bishop Auckland, Farlow of London, Hardy Bros. of Alnwich and Watson and Hancock of London. A superb example and a fine addition for the actual or armchair angler. Our books are cleaned and dust wrappers placed in new mylar whenever possible. Offered from a five star, full-time, professional bookseller and proud member of the Virginia Antiquarian Booksellers Association. Your satisfaction is our #1 priority.
