This is a nice copy of the first edition. For details of a new edition see below. Discusses the southern part of Scotland, as far north as Inverness. Ferox and Char in the Lochs of Scotland. Part I, a scarce and collectable book on ferox trout and Arctic charr, was originally published in 1940. Its author died in 1942 and Part II never saw the light of day. Indeed, it was believed that he had never completed the second part. Now, thanks to the literary detective work of Professor Peter S. Maitland and Professor Colin E. Adams of the University of Glasgow, the 'lost' manuscript of Part II of R.P. Hardie's Ferox and Char (1940) has come to light. Coch-y-Bonddu Books are pleased to offer Parts I and II of Ferox and Char in the Lochs of Scotland together in one high-quality collector's edition. Anglers, fishing historians and fisheries scientists alike will be able to finally study the completed work of Hardie's life-long and happy obsession with the relationship of Ferox Trout and Arctic Char in the lochs of Scotland. Two volumes - both in dust-wrappers and together in one slip-case. Limited to 100 numbered sets only. Price GBP 75.00.
