THE LAWS RELATING TO SALMON FISHERIES IN GREAT BRITAIN, including the statutes passed during the last session of parliament for England and Scotland, and the whole of the Scotch byelaws. By Thomas Baker, Esq., of the Inner Temple, Barrister-at-Law.

1866 1st edition. Small 8vo (115 x 193mm). Ppviii,206 + 16pp ads. Yellow end-papers with ads on paste-downs. Brown decorative blind-stamped cloth, upper board titled in gilt, spine untitled.

"The salmon fisheries of this country have, by long neglect, become greatly injured. Poachers, thoughtless anglers, ignorant fishermen, and, above all, the abuses arising from the use of fixed engines, and the loose manner in which the close seasons were fixed, threatened the total destruction of the fish. To remedy this state of things, several statutes have at length been passed, applicable to Great Britain. ...The plan of the following digest of these laws is to give at one view, under each division of the subject, the substance of the English Acts, referring in notes to the points of difference in Scotch statutes, together with analyses of the auxiliary and incorporated Acts, reports of decided cases, etc., etc. In an Appendix, the several enactments for both countries are printed at length; also the whole of the byelaws made under the statutes for Scotland".
