Item Description: Guardian Books. London. (2008) later reprint. Square 8vo (163 x 215mm). Pp310. Colour and b/w photographs, bibliography. Patterned end-papers. Brown boards, spine titled in black. Slight use, good-plus in slightly frayed dust-wrapper. "From reflections on agricultural life to the pleasures of country pursuits and observations on our flora and fauna, this engaging selection of pieces from the Guardian poignantly chart the changes in the British countryside over more than 150 years." Having said that, this collection is of deeper social interest than is at first obvious. ".In very recent times, the Guardian was something of a rarity in many parts of the English countryside. .That has changed, not in the sense that the newspaper is necessarily sweeping all before it, but because the people who live in rural Britain have also changed. A small fraction of them now earn their living from farming and related, traditional rural trades. Tourism, telecottaging, commuting and retirement each account for a much bigger share." By "changed" then, they mean "replaced", which sits uneasily with the pieces discussing "survival offences" and "vengeful attacks on authority". The editors' point of view is that of the new land-owning but unproductive class who have more or less replaced rural society: who have assumed the social authority of the farmers who were once large employers, whilst sentimentally, and inaccurately, mythologising the labouring classes who they have priced out of house and home. Interesting writing on the countryside taken from the pages of the (Manchester) Guardian since its foundation on 5th May 1821, "the day that Napoleon died". Includes articles from the likes of Arthur Ransome, Richard Mabey, Roly Smith, William Condry and many more. A good read, of much tangential interest. Bookseller Inventory # 35892

Price on dust-wrapper crossed out in ink. "A love of landscape and the countryside lies at the very heart of British life, yet most of us have long lost touch with our rural roots. In this heart-wearming and affectionate celebration of the countryside, cousins Sir Richard Heygate (the Bart) and Mike Daunt (the Bounder), countrymen themselves, travel the length and breadth of the British Isles chronicling stories of an 'endangered species' - the gamekeepers, farmers, fishermen, poachers, rogues and vagabonds who share their passion for this fast-disappearing way of life. Along the way, the Bart and the Bounder eat hedgehog with the Romany, tickle a trout, meet the White Witch of Cornwall, go rat-catching in Yorkshire, wildfowling in Norfolk, boar-hunting in Sussex and celebrate and uproarious Christmas in Ireland. .Eccentric, affectionate, humorous and touching in turn, Endangered Species stands as a glorious record of our country traditions." Chapters include:- Rat catching; Wildfowling and poaching; Hunting boars; Ireland; Duffers' fortnight; The mighty Tweed; Coracles; Who loves Lyme Regis?; The Island; Gypsies; Magic Cornwall; Christmas.

Item Description: The Lyons Press. Guilford, Connecticut. (2003) 2012 Lyons Press paperback edition. 8vo paperback (140 x 203mm). Ppiv,382. Unillustrated. Slight use but solidly intact second-hand paperback. Although noted as an American sporting writer, Guy de la Valdene is in fact French and has a background not unrelated to the setting of this novel of mystery, love and stag hunting in Normandy. So, a novel of a rural society not far removed from that of England, by someone who knows what he is talking about. "Red Stag is a lush, rich novel set on an estate in Normandy in the 1960's. Vincent has grown up as the son of a countess's maid. The identity of his father is a mystery, and the villagers claim he is a German bastard. When the novel opens, Vincent has just returned from his last year of boarding school for the summer. He's 19 years old. When his uncle is viciously murdered while scouting for deer poachers, Vincent vows revenge, and along with his best friend sets out to find the murderers. The village is in a state of anticipation awaiting the opening-day of the .hunt, with hounds and horses, for the royal red stag. Meanwhile, Nicole, the count's daughter, has returned to the estate from America. She is Vincent's age and they haven't seen each other for five years. As the search for the murderer's identity intensifies and the stag hunt approaches, Nicole and Vincent find themselves inexorably drawn together. The secrets ultimately revealed leave no one innocent, exposing the potential for both extreme cruelty and loyal friendship within the human heart.". Bookseller Inventory # 35841

East African adventure and big-game fishing with Adrian Conan Doyle, son of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes. Conan Doyle and his wife begin the book with a disastrous year in Tangiers, before moving briefly to the New Forest where they found themselves neighbours of F.A. Mitchell-Hedges. Conan Doyle and his new neighbour got together a joint expedition to the eastern Indian Ocean. However, the shipping company refused to carry Conan Doyle's pet dog any further than Mombasa, and so Mitchell-Hedges continued the journey alone. The Conan Doyles stayed behind with their "10 tons of shark hooks, tinned food, ropes, wire traces, rods, reels, rifles, tools, cameras, ammunition and medicines heaped on the wharfside." "In this book he tells vividly the story of . exploring the wild coral islands of the Mafia Channel and the seas of Zanzibar, Kilwa Kisiwani and the ruins of the Palace of Songa Manara.".

Item Description: Crown Publishers. New York. 1947 1st edition. Small slim 8vo (104 x 176mm). Pp110. Colour plates of flies, b/w line illustrations, errata slip. Gilt leaping trout motif to green cloth, spine titled in gilt. Shaken and used, front end-paper excised but internally clean. Working copy, lacks dust-wrapper. "Let me explain that the purpose of this book is to help the angler who is dissatisfied with the results he is now getting, and to help him realise his desire to know more about insects that govern his success. I have sought to aid him in identifying the important May flies and the artificial dry flies, and in some instances the nymphs, that imitate them. It is my conviction that the dry-fly enthusiast who can recognise such flies and select their artificial counterparts will take more and better fish, and will no longer find it necessary to ask 'What fly shall I use?'".

Cloth rubbed, slightly shaken, owner's stamp to front end-paper, underlining p208, creases to numerous pages. Good reading copy. The publishers infer that the compiler and illustrator are not the same person. "A most pleasing anthology by authors old and new, particularly of the captures of big fish." (Hampton). "A Thames professional fisherman tells of a midnight battle with a giant barbel, Mr. Albert Buckley gives a most thrilling account of is successful capture of Britain's record carp, and many are the accounts of stern fightswith noble salmon and trout in Norway, Sweden, and in Britain. .the whole volume, which has been designed to slip into the pocket, is illustrated by Watkins-Pitchford, whose work is such a feature of "BB" books. .its most unusual feature lies in the fact that "BB" has contacted the holders of fishing records and has got from them their first-hand accounts of how, where, and when they caught their big fish."

Item Description: An Angling Times Book. Peterborough. 1963 1st edition. Small 8vo (126 x 189mm). Pp123. B/w photographs, line illustrations. Gilt kingfisher motif and title to green boards, spine titled in gilt. Slight browning but good-plus. Lacks dust-wrapper. This book appears with two different dust-wrappers; the black, blue and white wrapper of the true first edition, and the green photographic wrapper marked 'First cheap edition'. Where no dust-wrapper is present, however, it appears impossible to distinguish between the two issues. "It is an indication of the degree of specialisation to which anglers nowadays strive that the book deals only with two species, but those chosen are perhaps the most popular among the great mass of anglers who yearn to catch specimen fish." Chapters include: Specimen hunting; Baits and their uses; Legering; The bream and where it is found; Tackle; Locating; Legering; Float fishing; Stillwater fishing; Suggested methods for big bream; The barbel and where it is found; Tackle; Locating; Legering; Float fishing; Suggested methods for big barbel.
