He, unable to afford another dog, or allow Nan any rest, always drowned her pups at birth. Desperate to save at least one litter, her motherhood instinct triumphed over her loyalty and she ran off to give to give birth on the desolate fells. This cost her her life, but Ned Foley, ex-tramp and dedicated poacher, understanding the ways of the wild as well as if he were an animal himself captured on of the pups. In the Swan one night he bet Pete Lanark, whose sheepdogs were always winners at the Sheepdog Trials, that he could not train his pup. Pete tooks the bet."

Item Description: Adam & Charles Black. London. (1938) 1954 edition. 8vo (145 x 226mm). Ppx,242. B/w photographs, illustrations. Brown cloth, spine titled in silver gilt. Boards bowed and stained, pages slightly creased. Good 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.

But there are tigers as well, snakes and a great bull bison that survived a titanic battle with a tiger. These are no mere hunter's stories: thrills there are, but difficulties too, failures and disappointments. But the author, who has spent a lifetime in trying to understand the minds of jungle creatures, takes us into his confidence and explains the methods by which he has been able to rid the remoter [areas] of India of some of their most terrible enemies. In doing so he builds up a vivid picture of the forest scene, which no reader is likely to forget.". Bookseller Inventory # 40572

Item Description: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington. London. 1877 1st edition. Small 8vo (130 x 186mm). Ppviii,363. Chapter heading engravings. Half-bound in red morocco over marbled boards, marbled edges, raised bands, gilt titles and gilt tooling to spine. Early half-leather binding. Leather rubbed at edges with small chip to top of spine, contemporary owner's name, minor annotation. Good-plus. "This little volume is really an unambitious one, as I wish its title to imply. I might almost call it a simple selection of 'Notes' from my commonplace book on angling, and from the enormous mass of piscine and piscatorial memoranda and extracts which have gradually accumulated around me." Manley rather plays down the value of his book. He includes a particularly good chapter on angling books and book collecting along with notes on ichthyology and the history of angling, including many quotes from early authors. Manley then goes on to describe the habits and fishing methods for the various species (excluding salmon, a subject which he felt required a book in itself). Throughout the book the River Thames is a recurring theme, clearly Manley's most familiar water, and he concludes with a chapter on Thames angling. Chapters include:- Ichthyology; The literature of fishing; Fishing as a sport; Fishing as a fine art; The trout; The grayling; The jack; The perch; The carp; The tench; The barbel; The bream; The chub; The roach; The dace; Small fry: - the gudgeon; Small fry: - The bleak, the pope, the loach; Small fry: - The minnow, the stickleback; Small fry: - The miller's thumb, the crayfish; Thames Angling.

"This book I have written, firstly, for those who want a more obedient dog, and secondly, for those who aspire to succes in competitions and/or working trials. and I trust that the majority of my readers will want both. .I have always found that in training it is much better to do a bit thoroughly than skip over a whole lot. The same applies to learning how to train - learning nearly anything, for that amtter. The first essential is to start at the bottom and build a solid foundation. My first object is to help the novice who has never trained a dog before to build such a foundation. I try to go further, but that remains my first object."

Item Description: The Boydell Press. Woodbridge, Suffolk. (1934) 1985 Boydell paperback edition. Small 8vo paperback (120 x 197mm). Ppviii,309. Unillustrated. Spine somewhat fatigued, some use and browning. Reading copy. Sheep rustling in Cumberland, with Beth, "an exceptionally resolute, shy, loyal collie". "For the reader, much of the fascination of the book lies in its closely-observed picture of the natural world. As well as the remarkable relationship between sheepdog and handler, and an authentic glimpse of how it is achieved, there is the life of the fells which ernest Lewis had experienced at first-hand: deer-stalking, poaching, fell hunting, hawking, an otter kept for stealing salmon, and above all the interaction of the sheepdog with the flock. Ernest Lewis was the pen-name of Ernest Vesey, naturalist and sportsman, who died in 1937 at the age of twenty-nine. He wrote four books, all of which drew on his practical sporting experience and his uncanny understanding of animals: Beth was written during a stay of several months on the farm of a trainer of sheepdogs in Cumberland.".
