THE DIARY AND OBSERVATIONS OF A TENCH FISHER. By D.R. Wakefield.

1981 1st edition. Folio (275 x 457mm). Fourteen etchings (four with colour) by the author on various coloured hand made papers. Quarter bound in caramel leather over marbled paper-covered boards, title label tipped-on to upper board, spine titled in gilt. Edition limited to 50 copies.

"This account of my angling experiences covers the 1980 and 1981 seasons. Shobrooke Park Lake is the sole venue, unless otherwise stated. Also included are several etchings, executed during the same period; these are not intended to be illustrations to the text, but could be considered an act of homage to the fishy world - perhaps to invoke better results in the future". A scarce and handsome book illustrated with the author's fine etchings and printed letterpress on hand-made paper. In this copy four of the etchings are in colour. The edition was limited to just fifty copies, signed and numbered on a colophon at the rear of the book. "This slim volume was designed and printed during the summer of 1981 at Tiverton in Devon. The Perpetua type was set by hand. The various hand-made papers are from Barcham Green. The edition is limited to 50 numbered copies". The Chevington Press was set up by Bob Wakefield in 1980. The Diary and Observations of a Tench Fisher was the first book produced.
