This softcover is in good condition considering the age of the book. The cover appears to be somewhat discoloured, and has visible markings and wear around corners and edges. It is particularly worn around the spine of the book. The edges of the pages are also discoloured and have issues with foxing, most noticeable when the book is closed, and some of which extends to the pages on the insides. The foxing is not a major issue on the inside of the pages, though it is fair, and the book readable and enjoyable. The book was published in 1919 by Goodall & Suddick and written by J.H.R Bazley.
'As a sport pregnant with strange situations and unusual happenings, providing illimitable opportunities in its legitimate prosecution and endless material for elaboration by imaginations properly attuned to the subject, Angling stands out alone... It may well be understood, therefore, that an angling career begun nearly forty years ago is likely to cover more than a few days of above the average of interest, not merely to the persevering disciple saturated with the sport, but the uninitiated as well. A record of a number of these I have determined to place before my readers for them to smile at, I hope, scoff at, and occasionally murmur "L--R".'
