ANGLING REMINISCENCES OF THE RIVERS AND LOCHS OF SCOTLAND. By Thomas Tod Stoddart, Esq.

(1837) 1887 3rd edition. 8vo (145 x 206mm). Pp238 + 8pp publisher's catalogue. Not illustrated. Blue cloth, spine titled in gilt with gilt fishing tackle design.

Stoddart's angling reminiscences of the rivers and lochs of Scotland. "These sketches aspire to little more than a delineation of such occurrences as are naturally met with by lovers of the gentle craft. They are endued by the author with a colloquial form and texture, chiefly because he is of opinion that, so habited, they accord better with the spirit of the subject to which they refer. Had it been otherwise, he should not have obtruded upon a mode of composition already preoccupied by the patriarch Walton, Sir Humphrey Davy, and others. Further apology, however, he deems unnecessary, as he is not aware, throughout the following chapters, of having laid himself open to any censure as a plagiarist".
