EDWARDIANS GO FISHING: OR MANY DAYS ON MANY WATERS. By G. Cornwallis-West.

1932 1st edition. 8vo (145 x 225mm). Pp218. B/w photograph plates. Tan buckram, upper board and spine titled in black.

Reminiscences of the author's own fishing experiences - childhood on the Clwyd and Elwy, chalkstream trout fishing in the south of England, and salmon and sea-trout fishing, largely in Scotland and Ireland. Cornwallis-West was well-placed to watch the Edwardian upper-classes at play, having married first Lady Randolph Churchill (Winston Churchill's mother), and later the famous actress, Mrs Patrick Campbell. "A breezy book of anecdote and reminiscence, leaving an entertaining impression of the personalities and sport of the early years of the present century." (Where To Fish 1933).
