1970 1st edition. 8vo (142 x 222mm). Pp205. B/w photograph plates, b/w illustration, foreword by Gerald Nabarro, MP. Brown boards.
"The author has spent the best part of his life dealing in all types of exotic woods, and it is only natural that he should turn to collecting different examples, and in what better way than in Walking Sticks. Mr. A.E. Boothroyd is a collector as well as an antiques dealer and has amassed a very large collection of which it has only been possible to show in this book some 280 examples." The sticks presented in this book are in fact made from a wide variety of different materials. Interesting and informative.
