1980 1st edition. 4to (216 x 298mm). Tipped-in frontispiece portrait and three b/w plates, b/w illustrations, 40 mounted specimen hackles on on five pages of black art paper, tipped in description pages. Quarter-bound in black morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, spine titled in gilt. Slipcase, black cloth top and bottom, light tan paper covered sides.

A record of the author's experiences breeding Old English Game for their hackles. Based on a manuscript presented to the Flyfishers' Club in 1962. The book was intended to be published in an edition of 180 copies, the limitation page carries the following statement: "One hundred and eighty copies of this work have been printed on Glastonbury Antique laid paper, and are signed by the editor. Only one hundred and sixty numbered copies are for sale. Twenty Standard Limited Edition copies are 'out of series'. Edition-de-Luxe copies numbered I - XL, contain one hundred and twenty mounted specimen hackles, and are specially bound in half green morocco, emblematically gilt tooled, by Aquarius. Standard Limited Edition copies numbered from 41 - 160 contain forty mounted specimen hackles, and are case-bound by Tony Sismore in quarter black morocco grained leather, with gilt lettering". However only four copies of the Edition-de-Luxe were bound by Aquarius, and even these were never completed, not having the hackles or legend mounted and tipped-in at the rear. These four incomplete books were later sold at auction as a lot. Of the standard edition, supposedly limited to 120 numbered and 20 out of series copies, only around 66 copies were actually bound. The title-page carries a date of 1980 however no copies were issued until 1982. "Only 66 were bound and finished for sale". (Tony Sismore).
