White card covers. / "...a series of paperbound monographs, written about very specific and obscure bits of angling bibliography". "40 copies were printed October, 2017". "The two book reviewers in 'The Fisherman's Magazine' were particularly critical of books and authors that they did not care for, sometimes taking a savage delight in belittling the subject of the review. This monograph selects the most caustic reviews in the magazine, challenges their claims, rebuts their statements, comments on their style, and takes the long-dead reviewers to task for their harsh reviews and personal attacks."
