THE BEST OF BRITISH BAITS. AN IDENTIFICATION GUIDE TO ARTIFICIAL LURES FROM 1849 - 1930. By Chris Sandford.

1997 1st edition. Large 8vo (175 x 246mm). Pp208. Colour photographs by Terry Griffiths, illustrations from old catalogues. Maroon cloth, gilt lure motif to upper board, spine titled in gilt.

The first in-depth study of artificial lures made in Britain. "This identification guide is the result of five years intensive research and traces the history of our lures from Izaac Walton's detailed description of a silk minnow in 1653 through to the 1930's. Patent specifications are used chronologically to mark the development and examine the innovations found in the design of the artificial bait in Great Britain. Actual examples of lures are seen with their patent details and pages from the catalogues of major tackle manufacturers help complete this fascinating study". Privately published by the author, designed by Mike Starkey and with colour photographs by Terry Griffiths. Only 1,000 copies were printed.
