CLIFFE, John Henry. Notes and Recollections of an Angler. London, Hamilton, Adams & Co. 1870.

8vo. Original green cloth, decorated with gilt device depicting sad looking fish & rods on a riverbank, bordered in black; pp. xii, 254, [2, ads]; a very good copy with a light smattering of foxing to end gatherings and a little toning to the spine.
Second edition. A book of fishing anecdotes focusing on Wales. The author credits the increased access to railways in his lifestime as one of the reasons for the success of his book, as anglers began to head further afield in search of their sport.
