Volume III of "The Angler's Library", edited by Sir Herbert Maxwell and F.G. Aflalo. Westwood and Satchell gives 1898 as the first edition and most copies seem to be so dated. Since publishing Pike Anglers' Library I have seen a copy clearly dated (in Roman numerals) 1897 on the title-page. Jardine was one of the most successful pike anglers ever, with catches of large fish comparable to those of today's specimen hunters. He gave his name to the Jardine snap-tackle, popular for a century, and to the Jardine lead. He was the first in a dynasty of well-known anglers which continues to the present.
