THE ANGLER'S QUOTATION BOOK: A WATERSIDE COMPANION. Edited by Eric Restall.

1993 1st edition. Small 8vo (133 x 183mm). Pp94. B/w illustrations, coloured end-papers. Black boards, spine titled in silver-gilt.

With this book, "the angler can relax with the wit, wisdom and humour of his fellow sportsmen. He will sympathize with the day-dreaming of the late Eric Morecambe, revel in the wayward dedication of HM The Queen Mother, admire the gentle philosophy of their patriarch, Izaak Walton, and empathize with Thomas Bewick's attack on private waters. He can shudder too at H.E. Bates's awesome description of the predator Esox lucius, view with mistrust Ovid's advice, share the anticipation of 'J.R. Hartley', puzzle at Lord byron's vitriolic assault on Izaak Walton, enjoy Charles Kingsley's lyrical descriptions of a chalk stream and be fascinated by an 1800-year-old description of fly fishing."
