Product description

SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR: This softcover book is in good condition overall. The cover of the book has some issues with foxing, which also to sections of the book. The staple binding also appears to be rusty and worn down. The foxing extends to the edges of the pages, as well as some pages just inside each side of the cover. The vast majority of the pages inside, have less or no issues with foxing, and all have no issues which severely impact enjoyment of the book. The book was published by Henry Millward & Sons, and was written by F.D Holcombe. As mentioned above, the book appears to be have signed by the author, though as this was a donated item, we cannot personally verify the signature.

'Sea fishing with rod and line has greatly increased in popularity in recent years, and today there are thousands of keen and enthusiastic sea anglers of both sexes throughout the country... In spite of these facts, it is fairly safe to say that to the large a majority of summer seaside visitors, the joys of what is a really delightful and health-giving sport are unknown. It is to these summer migrants that this book is addressed; and if it succeeds in converting some of you to the sport, the object with which it has been written will have been achieved.'
