Float Fishing

£39.99

Product description

This hardcover book is in very good condition overall. The cover has no major issues, but is slightly worn around some edges and corners, and has some some small but visible markings. The edges of the pages appear to be somewhat discoloured, which is noticeable when the book is closed. On the inside, the pages are in very good condition overall. On some individual pages, there appear to be some very slight instances of foxing, but it is not major or widespread. The book was published by George Allen & Unwin in 1925, and was written by Ernest Phillips.

'The reason for launching this book is easily stated. As far as I know, it is the first modern book to deal exclusively with float-fishing...It occurred to me that there are thousands of anglers, particularly in the great cities of the Midlands and the North, who begin their career with the float, and never desert it for any other method, and it is to this very large and increasing number that the book is directed.'
