WATER COLOURS: FURTHER RAMBLINGS OF AN ARTIST-ANGLER. By Maurice J. Pledger. NOT A BOOK - Set of publisher's colour proofs.

2013. 17 pages unbound, 16 of which carry colour paintings plus 1 of photographs plus proofs of dust-wrapper and paperback cover.

This is a set of seventeen colour proofs of the illustrations and photographs used in Maurice Pledger's second angling book, Water Colours. One print is of a page of photographs, the remaining sixteen are of Maurice Pledger's wonderful colour illustrations. There are also proofs of both the dust-wrapper that was to be used for the hardcover edition as well as the cover used for the paperback edition. All of the prints have been signed in ink by the author and artist, Maurice Pledger, on the bottom right corner. The dust-wrapper and paperback cover proofs have been signed on the rear. An attractive and unique set, ideal for framing. "The stories from Maurice's boyhood fizz with enthusiasm and there's no doubt that his early experiences and observations were the inspiration for his artistic life. However, what marks this book out as something special is the remarkable series of fish paintings, fish with so much natural beauty and grace that they almost swim off the page". Chris Yates in his Foreword to Maurice's previous book, While My Float's Still Cocked. "Fishing is about people, places, memories, events, tragedies, hope and elation. It's emotional and until you understand that you're not really an angler. You're just someone who happens to go fishing. The author of this book, Mole to his friends, gets it. He understands. And that's why this book is a delight... I envy Mole. He breathes life and vibrancy into his fish paintings as you will see in the colour plates. It's a precious gift that makes this book very special". Bob Roberts in his Introduction. Launched at the Lands End Inn, Charvil, on August 10th, 2013.
