THE DOMESDAY BOOK OF GIANT SALMON: A RECORD OF THE LARGEST ATLANTIC SALMON EVER CAUGHT. By Fred Buller.

2007 1st edition. Large 4to (210 x 275mm). Pp480. Colour and sepia photographs throughout. Brown cloth, spine titled in gilt.

Thirty years on from The Domesday Book of Mammoth Pike, Fred Buller has now produced the ultimate book of huge salmon. He gives accounts of 170 fly-caught fish of over 50lb, and of 152 fish weighing over sixty pounds whether caught by fly, bait, net or poaching. "This book was wonderful. It is a throwback to the golden age of British publishing. It is well written, beautifully illustrated and a joy to own. The stories of legendary catches are warm, insightful and written in a way that reminds me of Evelyn Waugh. Odd I know, but the text is, more often than not, literature". From a review in The Economist. Volume Two, a supplement to this edition, was published in December 2010, our stock no. 24214.
