FISHES AND FISHING: Artificial breeding of fish, Anatomy of their senses, Their loves, passions and intellects. With illustrative facts. By W. Wright, Esq.

1858 1st edition. 12mo (110 x 175mm). Ppxii,384. 3 engraved plates (of elephant fish, eel tongs and Wright's portable gudgeon rake). Red cloth, spine titled and decorated in gilt, boards elaborately blind-stamped.

A miscellany of coarse- and flyfishing, and natural history of fishes. Much on the angling experiences of the author around London in the early 1800s, including salmon fishing on the river Lea in 1805, descriptions of split-cane rod-building, and of fly-tying in the same period. I particularly like the "indispensable adjunct to a gudgeon-fisher's apparatus" - Wright's portable gudgeon rake.
