BICKERDYKE, John. Angling for Game Fish. London, L Upcott Gill, [ca. 1899].
8vo. Original illustrated wrappers; pp. (6, ads), [1, title], (1, ad), 138, (14, ads); cover a little faded in places with some loss to tail of spine, internally very clean but a little fragile in general, an unusual survival of a vulnerable volume.
A charming and attractively typeset edition of Bickerdyke's well-known angling advice. It is unlikely this volume (one of a series of works by the same author) was intended to survive long outside of a sturdier binding - the cover illustration and angling advertisements lend it a period feel which makes you rather glad it never made it to the binders to be stripped of them.
