FOWLER'S MOON. By Nigel Thornycroft.

1955 1st edition. Small 8vo (135 x 200mm). Pp192. B/w illustrations by Corona. Red cloth, flying geese motif in gilt to upper board, spine titled in gilt.

'Fowler's Moon' is a delightful and nostalgic book on wildfowling written (and smuggled out) by Nigel Thornycroft while in a P.O.W. camp, using an illegal pencil and scraps of toilet paper. This is the first edition of 'Fowlers Moon', originally published in 1955, and was the book which established Nigel as an icon of English coastal wildfowlers. This title has recently been reprinted by Coch-y-Bonddu Books, in both high-quality paperback and limited edition hardback, half-bound in leather.
