"The story of the hook is traced from the caveman of a million or more years ago to the fisherman of today. ...Much hitherto unpublished material [and] a fascinating collection of illustrations". The modern history of the hook is told from the point of view O. Mustad & Son, the Norwegian hook manufacturers. Still widely regarded as the best book on the subject.
