"PARDESI" Wet-Fly Fishing in Kashmir; a Book for the Novice. Lahore: The Civil & Military Gazette Ltd., [c. 1930].

8vo. Original pale green cloth, upper cover with black single fillet borders, titled at head in black; pp. 108, 4pp. advertisements at rear, with 8 wood-engraved vignettes, and 9 illustrations of fisherman's knots; some light rubbing to extremities, very good.
First (? and only) edition. This copy has the booksellers' stamp on the front free endpaper, of "Rainas' Book Sellers', Srinagar, Kashmir". This is a splendidly chatty and informative read, with discussion of subjects as random as learning to cast, "hooking and playing", contrasting the fishing on the different rivers, and replete with anecdotal information.
