Light foxing to edges but a very good copy in a slightly rubbed but very good dust-wrapper. Most certainly one of the hardest to find titles in the How to Catch Them series. "With British sea-anglers the cod is a great favourite and this little book will help 'good fishing' when the cod are running. In his introduction Winston Hall describes the life and behaviour of the cod and the, in a logical sequence, he sets out the best way of tackling the capture of good fish. There are chapters on Choosing the Rod - Shore Fishing - Baits - Boat Fishing and Tackle - Drift Fishing - Boats and Equipment. Finally the author unfolds a miscellany of hints and wrinkles acquired through years of experience in fishing for cod from shore, boat and pier. There is no better value than this if you aim to catch a record 40pounder this season.". Bookseller Inventory # 34289

"BB"'s evocative and beautifully illustrated novel based on the life of a wild fox in the Pytchley country of Northamptonshire. A new edition with a new (1969) introduction by the author. "In the first version of Wild Lone Rufus was killed by hounds, at the end of a great run, in Hiaway Wood. But my publishers urged that he should be spared. So Rufus gains his sanctuary under the big fir. But I leave it to the reader to decide for himself whether it was indeed Rufus, the one-eared fox, which emerged long after hounds had left, or whether it was his shadowy spirit which 'steals down into the valley fields' under the watching stars." "Hideous pylons march across the open uplands where once Rufus hunted so happily under the moon." "A complete picture of the wild life of a preserved and sporting landscape. His adventures and hairbreadth escapes, his fighting and mating, make a story which is exciting without upsetting the balance of natural probability." (The Observer). Bookseller Inventory # 34299

Green boards, spine titled in gilt. Very good in slightly browned and used dust-wrapper. Nice New Zealand trouting stories. ".John McInnes is a fisherman in the classic tradition of moving quietly and thinking carefully. Tread Quietly is not about the 'name' fisheries; it is about the river alongside the road, or the stream just outside town - although there are tales of excursions into the backblocks, and many of New Zealand's more enticing rivers and lakes in the stories. There is insight too - into fishing the nymph during hot clear summers, using the sedge in the wee small hours of the morning, or stalking feeding cruisers along the edge of a lake. But there is little instruction. The insight comes as the stories and discussions unfold.". Bookseller Inventory # 34317

Slight use and browning but very good in poor dust-wrapper.

The story tells of breathless adventure; of heroic endurance on the part of Geoffrey and Phyllis Merridew, the girl he loves; of how they are trapped in the Himalayas in the bowels of the mountain Kailas; of the horrors and the wonders they find in the temple, of the gallant rescue by the Pathan Sher Khan, a devoted friend, and of the unexpected identity of the 'Tiger of Tibet'". The dust-wrapper of this copy was printed with a price of 2/6 on the spine. This was overstickered with a war-time price of 3/-, and after that another stating "Reduced To 1/6".

Item Description: Greenhill Books. London. 1993 1st edition. Hardback issue. 8vo (158 x 241mm). Pp126. B/w photographs and illustrations. Laminated boards. Very good in spine-faded dust-wrapper. "A new perspective of one of the most successful series of military sniping rifles, the .303 No. 4 (T) and 7.62mm L42A1. The L42 has only recently been declared obsolescent in British service. This sniper rifle series has seen over fifty years of front line service, an indicator of its precision, durability and superb design. Such military hardware is a finely balanced match between the rifle action, furniture and bedding, telescopic sight and ancillary equipment. No easy task by any standard. And the British system quite obviously 'got it right', and first time too. This urgent wartime development was carried on by the famous gunsmiths, Holland and Holland, who converted virtually all of the .303 No. 4 (T) sniper rifles. Indeed, the Holland and Holland workmanship was of such quality that conversions of the .303 rifles during the 1960's and 1970's did not require any modifications or 'band-aid' measures to the original Holland and Holland work. This study is especially invaluable for the competition shooter who uses these rifles because it details many of the secrets and tricks employed by service armourers to obtain maximum accuracy and reliability out from these fine weapons." Chapters include:- An introduction to the No. 4 (T); Why choose the No. 4?; The contracts; The costs; Production figures; Conversion: The Holland & Holland story; Trials, trials and more trials; The Canadian connection; Open sights and zeroing the rifles; Telescopic sights, the No. 32; Case, sighting telescope No. 8; Chest, small arms No. 15; The cover, short rifle; Rifles, telescopes and the post-war years; Every picture tells a story; The mystery of the .22-in models; Engineering and gauging standards; The ill-fated L8 (T) sniper rifle; Introduction of the L42 A1 rifle; Rifle, 7.62mm L42 A1; An armourer's postscript.

".I have endeavoured in this book to show how fish reveal to the observer their intentions and emotions by attitudes, movements and changes in colour. I have described the eggs and the early life histories of a few of our commoner fishes, and how the adult fish is assisted in the battle for existence by concealing coloration and other devices. The habits of a few marine animals have been dealt with, and finally I have explained in detail how the various photographs shown have been obtained, in the hope that the information may be of assistance to those interested in fish photography."

Boards slightly bowed and stained, slight browning to end-papers. Good copy in like dust-wrapper. The story of three hunting and photographic expeditions: in the Rockies, the Red Sea Hills, and on the Sudan-Congo border. "This is a book of safari mainly in quest of three of the world's remaining rare animals - the blue goat of Idaho which scientists swore never existed, the wild ass of the Red Sea hills of the Sudan which they believed to be extinct, and the red buffalo of the Azande country of Southern Sudan on the Congo border with its sunless gallery-forests, which they had never seen. Mr Mason succeeded in finding all three and the story of his tracking and stalking of these animals is also the story of many other of the rarer game animals which he came across. His account of his expeditions is a remarkable blend of the life of the sportsman, the naturalist, and the man entirely at home in out-of-the-way places.". Bookseller Inventory # 34308

Item Description: Johnson Books. Boulder, CO. 1994 1st edition. 8vo paperback (153 x 229mm). Ppxii,163 + 1pp ad. Maps. Cover slightly faded but otherwise a very good copy. An American's experiences flyfishing in Australia and New Zealand. "Chris Dawson had ten months of his life to spend as he wished. He wished to flyfish - down under, in the lands of the kookaburras, kiwis, and twenty-four inch trout. Avoiding luxury lodges and gourmet dining, Dawson took a backroads approach to fishing Australia and New Zealand. He mingled with the locals and learned their lessons for flyfishing for some of the most difficult trout to be found anywhere: dress like a tuft of grass, move like a heron, cast like Lefty Kreh, and wash it all down with a good brew! You may never have ten months to flyfish some of the greatest rivers on earth, but you can enjoy Chris Dawson's nitty-gritty storytelling. So, pack up your woolly worms and keep an eye out for wombats!" "Dawson understands that there's more to a long fishing trip than fish. There are people, places, customs, beers, and, in this case, kangaroos." (John Gierach). Bookseller Inventory # 34344
