His drawings, paintings and writings have established him for ever in the history of the game fowl. For those who wish to be introduced to Old English Game the descriptions, advice and breed standards are still relevant today as written. The Golden Duckwing Cock illustrated is from an oil painting by Herbert Atkinson completed in 1929 for the breeder George Oates, Jr. of Stanforth. The mastery of his art is clearly exhibited.".

Slight use but good, solidly intact second-hand paperback. "New York State offers an amazing array of places to flyfish: narrow spring creeks and enormous flows like the Delaware and Susquehanna, mountain ponds in the Adirondacks and virtual oceans in Lake Ontario, Lake Erie and Lake Champlain. These waters host almost every freshwater fish that will take a fly. This book focuses primarily on trout and salmon, but the smallmouth, some muskellunge and carp, and even the occasional bowfin (see Lake Champlain) are covered too. Saltwater angling in New York demands a book of its own; however, you will find river fishing for migratory shad and striped bass in these pages. There is an emphasis on moving waters, but plenty of pond [= lake] fishing is included." Thousands of venues in this enormous east coast state, which mostly lies inland, along with travel and accomodation information, and lots of essential stuff about access and regulations. 1885106920.

Item Description: The Hillfield Press. East Grinstead, Sussex. 1987 1st edition. Small format paperback (111 x 178mm). Pp80. Unillustrated, foreword by Arthur Oglesby. Creases to cover but solidly intact second-hand paperback. Graeme Harris's copy, title-page inscribed by the author.* "David Shaw may be better known to most of us as the forthright columnist in Trout and Salmon magazine. Not known for mincing his words, he has for many years drawn our urgent attention to the appalling misuse of our Atlantic salmon resource. The fact that many who net, trap and generally create a deal of mayhem on the oceans and around our coasts and in our estuaries perform these acts under the strict umbrella of legitimacy does not protect them from David's vitriolic pen. In this new work, David has put the vitriol to one side in a lyrical approach to his own philosophy on salmon angling. His real modesty shines through andit soon becomes obvious that he derives much more satisfaction from being a part of the salmon anglers' overall environment than he does by merely catching fish. If I have any criticism it is that the work is too brief!" From the foreword, by Arthur Oglesby. * The title-page is inscribed "September 1987. For Dr. Graeme Harris. Best wishes, David Shaw.".

Item Description: Chatto & Windus. London. 1894 1st edition. 12mo (116 x 172mm). Pp,116,32[publisher's catalogue]. Pictorial red cloth, black titles to spine. Cloth worn, bookseller's embossed stamp and annotation to front end-paper, hinges tender. Good reading copy only. "Many manuals have been published for the edification of beginners in the art of shooting. If that art can indeed be acquired by reading, there is no reason why any youth, whose education has been properly attended to, should not be perfectly proficient in it without having fired a single shot. But I have noticed in all these volumes a grave defect. In none of them is any instruction given which shall enable a man to obtain a conversational as well as a merely shooting success. Every pursuit has its proper conversational complement. The farmer must know how to speak of crops and the weather in picturesque and inflammatory language. Similarly, a shooter must be able to speak of his sport and its varied incidents. . The great thing, surely, is to be both a good shot and a cheerful, light-hearted companion, with a fund of anecdotes and a rich store of allusions appropriate to every phase of shooting. I venture to hope that the hints I have here put together may be of value to all who propose to go out and 'kill something' with a gun." Numerous prepackaged anecdotes, with step by step instructions on how to deliver them in different circumstances, as well as how to use them to spur your interlocutor into doing all the work for you, while you nod and say yes, absolutely. First published in Punch, and as valuable as ever. Bookseller Inventory # 34724

Rather used, usual slight browning but solidly intact second-hand paperback. "Falkus and Buller's Freshwater Fishing is a classic: a book which no one with an intelligent interest in angling can afford to be without .A book of tackle and techniques, with some notes on various fishes; fish recipes; fishing safety and other sundry matters".ing contribution to the literature of this great sport." An encyclopaedic work encompassing all aspects of British freshwater fishing. The authors' passion for research, their love of angling, even their avowed interest in the culinary qualities of their catch, seem to me a healthier approach to the subject that that of many writers of today, whose over-emphasis on technical and conservation aspectsseem to take much of the excitement and spontaneity of fishing. Part I covers fishes, Part II rigs, tackles and methods of capture, with some reference to American ideas. Bookseller Inventory # 34716

His drawings, paintings and writings have established him for ever in the history of the game fowl. For those who wish to be introduced to Old English Game the descriptions, advice and breed standards are still relevant today as written. The Golden Duckwing Cock illustrated is from an oil painting by Herbert Atkinson completed in 1929 for the breeder George Oates, Jr. of Stanforth. The mastery of his art is clearly exhibited.".

Blue boards, silver-gilt titles to spine. Slight use, slight browning to end-papers. Good copy in slightly used and faded dust-wrapper. "The FAO Conference on Fish in Nutrition was unique in so far as it brought together for the first time on an international platform people working in fisheries, in production as well as research, with specialists in nutrition and animal feeding. Its object was to evaluate some of the existing knowledge of the role of fish in human and animal feeding, and to stimulate further study and exploration. One such matter which emerged was the possible role of fish protein concentrates in human nutrition, a product which is not only needed now to relieve animal protein shortage in diets, but will become more and more necessary in nutrition as population density increases. It may be said that fish protein concentrates furnish a way of making directly available to man the richness of the multitudinous 'small fishes' which abound in the ocean but are only slightly used in contrast to the larger and more expensive forms of fish which at present mark consumer taste." This isn't about where your cod and chips come from, nor even fish fingers. These papers examine fish as a bulk industrial feedstock - lots of material on fish meal and flour, for instance. Lots on canning and so forth too. Dozens of papers by hundreds of researchers. The book begins with papers assessing how much fish was out there, trends over time and such things as the effects of removing predators. Subsequent parts include: Chemical components of fish and their changes under treatment; Contribution of fish and fish products to national diets; Fish and fishery products in animal nutrition; Demand for fish as human food and possibilities for increased consumption. This book has a very contemporary ring, except that now there aren't any fish left, the same sort of industries are saying the same sort of things about insects. Well worth a read.
