Details

(1959) 1994 FFCL edition. 8vo (160 x 240mm). Ppxx,159. Colour plate of flies & b/w illustrations, gilt edges, marbled end-papers, silk marker. Handsome full leather gilt in clamshell box.

A very attractive edition of Ransome's scarce book of angling essays containing observations on fishing and fly-dressing, with chapters on Victorian and earlier fly-dressers. A chapter also deals with his famous Blue Elver fly, an example of which, tied by Annie Douglas, is mounted in a window inside the front board and protected by a tissue guard. This is one of 55 deluxe copies, handsomely bound in chestnut goatskin with gilt edges, raised bands, hand-marbled end-papers and silk marker, in a silk-lined clamshell box. There is also a standard Flyfisher's Classic library edition available.
