ROSCOE, E. S. Ramblings with a Fishing-Rod London, William Blackwood & Sons, 1883.
8vo. Original green cloth, decorated in black to upper cover, and titled in gold to spine; pp.152; past owner inscription to half-title, a little occasional light foxing and some exterior rubbing, but a very good copy.
First edition. A self-confessedly light-hearted work containing short stories of the author's fishing expeditions 'on the continent'. Ranging from the Black Forest to the Eastern Alps, Roscoe litters his anecdotes with local trivia and descriptive vistas of late 19th century Europe.
