FISHER, P. [pseud. of William CHATTO]. G. Christopher DAVIES [ed.] The Angler's Souvenir. Frederick Warne. 1886.
8vo. Original green cloth, decorated in gilt to front and spine, t.e.g.; pp. 311, plates, text within pictorial borders; binding a little dulled, scattered foxing throughout, very good. Provenance: publisher's copy, inkstamp to flyleaf. Small envelope pasted to ffep, containing TLS to the publisher W. Fruing Warne from F.J. Cross of Cassell, dated 11 December 1903, with a separate statement sheet detailing the prices and print runs of Warne's 1877 and 1886 editions of this book and the engravings that were used in them. It would appear that Warne had sent this book and the statement to Cross with a view to some kind of collaboration or possible sale of the rights. Cross's letter informs him that Cassell is "unable to entertain the proposal you are good enough to make. I therefore return the book herewith".
New edition. A lavishly produced book for anglers with very charming illustrations.
