WANLESS, Alexander. The Science of Spinning for Salmon & Trout. London, Herbert Jenkins Ltd, [ca. 1942].
8vo. Original green cloth stamped in black to upper cover & spine, with dust wrapper; pp. 168 ; dust wrapper worn, with a little loss to the tail of spine, occasional mild foxing throughout.
Second printing. This second edition makes changes to account for the introduction of salmon-sized reels (where in the first printing the author had only a trout-sized reel). The author attributes this to a fast growing interest in spinning, which he argues affords the angler greater opportunities not dependent on the state of the water.
