Front Cover
Read Books, 2010 - Sports & Recreation - 96 pages
This book presents a clear view of England's most prominent angling literature. Some of the pages are devoted to descriptions of fishing by Greek and Latin authors and there is also a short account of a few books on other subjects interesting to fishermen. The book also includes some bibliographical catalogues of books on fish and fishing. Originally published in 1881 this small book will appeal to historians and enthusiasts of the sport of fishing. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original artwork and text.
