THE GAME FISHES OF AFRICA. By Hugh Copley.

1952 1st edition. 8vo (160 x 225mm). Pp276. B/w photographs, illustrations, bibliography. Blue-green cloth.

A comprehensive work on the angler's fishes, freshwater and salt, with advice on angling techniques. "The main aim of this book is to help and guide men situated in any part of Africa in their efforts to catch fish. It strives to go much further than this, it endeavours to give them new facts, to enable them to identify the fish they see or catch, and to awaken their interest in the fish themselves. ...The book is designed to be a companion to Lydekker's The Game Animals of Africa, a volume which has been the sportsman's guide for a great number of years." The book is taxonomically arranged, with detailed identification on each species, some indication of where to expect to find it, whether you can eat it and the sort of baits it responds to. In assembling this work, Hugh Copley collected and collated reports from a great many scientists and experienced anglers operating in all parts of Africa. The author later used the freshwater section of this book as the basis of anew work, Common Freshwater Fishes of East Africa, published in 1958.
