Item Description: Adam & Charles Black. London. (1938) 1947 2nd edition. 8vo (139 x 224mm). Ppx,242. B/w photographs. Red cloth, silver gilt titles to spine. Stained and bashed. Working copy only in poor dust-wrapper. "This volume is the result of an honest effort to describe, with such impartiality as I am capable of, the many and various legal methods of catching trout with rod and line in common usage to-day in the British Isles." Carter Platts further states that he has avoided "hysterical partisanship" and "I crave forgiveness of the fly fisher for having devoted so much space to bait fishing, while, with equal humility, I entreat the pardon of the bait fisher for allotting so many pages to fly fishing." Platt's recommended reading on the subject of entomology is W.G. Bainbridge's The Fly-fisher's Guide to Aquatic Flies. Some of the material in the text was first published in the Field and the Salmon and Trout Magazine, and no less than H.D. Turing and G.E.M. Skues helped prepare the manuscript.

Item Description: Readers Union/Collins. New Naturalist Series. (1946) 1953 RU edition. 8vo (150 x 222mm). Ppxviii,240. Colour plates of paintings, b/w photograph plates, bibliography. "Reader's Union" in gilt to rear of green buckram. Good-plus. Adhesive plastic to free, tanned and chipped dust-wrapper. Brian Vesey-Fitzgerald gives a detailed account of all the British birds and mammals which are pursued by sportsmen, as well as other species which are, or were at the time of publication, pursued by gamekeepers trying to protect the game species. The book is divided into six parts; the game birds; the wildfowl; the waders; ground game and various; the deer; the preservation of game. This is the second volume in the New Naturalist series. The tone and style of the text is more in the manner of the previous generation of sporting literature than in the style and approach which subsequently came to mark the New Naturalist books.
