Item Description: Barry Shurlock. London. (1946) 1973 reprint. Small 8vo (127 x 191mm). Ppiv,156. B/w illustrations. Red boards, spine titled in gilt. Cloth slightly stained, spotting to edges. Good copy in spine-faded, price-clipped dust-wrapper. "The heronry at Mootwood where Garth is reared cannot be his home for ever. At Blaefen he discovers the lethal powers of his spear-bill and is then nudged out to seek his own means of survival. But his staple food lies beneath the ice and snow of a hard winter, and he drifts into a stupor, close to death. He comes across an eel, equally comatose, which he greedily consumes. In the warmth of Garth's crop its teeth tear open the soft skin, and only a chance intervention of Man saves him. His health restored, he goes out again into the wild, by saltmarsh and mudflat, by river and tarn, to live by his spear. At maturity he takes Grold for his mate, but a final encounter with a gyr falcon leads to a dramatic end.". Bookseller Inventory # 45384

Item Description: Robson Books. London. 2002 1st edition. 8vo paperback (135 x 215mm). Ppx,326. Not illustrated. A used but solidly intact second-hand paperback. A collection of articles recounting stories gleaned from lore, legend and the sporting press. "Shooting's Strangest Days is a unique collection of stories about the mad, the bad and the truly dangerous to know, from more than two hundred years of sporting shooting. They include mad old colonels who took their trousers off before going elephant hunting, women poachers with terriers sewn into their underskirts, and duck shooters chasing their quarry in helicopters. Tom Quinn covers everything from delightfully dotty Royals, like George V, who always went shooting with a loader deliberately chosen because he looked exactly like the King - to obscure French chamois hunters, South American crocodile stranglers, Russian secret service beaters and suicidal Himalayan goat guides. Shooting's Strangest Days takes an entertaining look at these characters, gathered together here in their vast and until now, long forgotten eccentricity.". Bookseller Inventory # 45396

Item Description: Little Egret Press / Waters Edge Publications. St. Germans, Cornwall. (1964) 2017 paperback edition. 8vo paperback (147 x 212mm). Ppx,79. B/w vignette illustrations by Tom O'Reilly. Mint new paperback. Dennis Pye, one of the best-known Norfolk Broads pike anglers in his day, presents a series of essays on his ground-breaking methods. "This is a book which most anglers will consider startling. From it, it is quickly apparent that Dennis Pye has opened up new styles and methods of fishing and in doing so has learned much of value to anglers in search of big fish. None of it is theory. Fishing the upper Thurne area of the Norfolk Broads, Dennis has caught more specimen fish in the last 15 years than any other Broadsman has done in a lifetime. He is a nonconformist. Not for Dennis the methods considered adequate by others. His curt dismissal of better known methods may seem contemptuous but who can argue against his record? In the past ten years Dennis has landed 240 pike over 20lb, rudd topping the 3lb mark and a tench of 6lb 8oz - the biggest tench on record from the Norfolk Broads. This book is the culmination of years of searching, as well as fishing, and contains a wealth of good advice for anglers who, like Dennis Pye, have only one aim, the capture of specimen fish. For visitors to Broadland it will be particularly valuable." Dennis Pye's essays are: Fishing for pike; Rudd fishing; Perch fishing; Tench fishing; Bream fishing; Roach fishing; The waters of the Broads. This 2017 paperback edition is a re-issue of the 2006 Little Egret Press edition, though lacking the photographs and foreword by Stephen Harper that were found in the 2006 edition.

Mr Perks is sporting cartoonist Bryn Parry's invention and has been a regular feature of the gun dog section of 'The Shooting Gazette' for years. So popular has Mr Perks' advice been that he has decided to impart some of his vast wisdom, knowledge and skill in book form. In this tome, Mr Perks, sometimes with the help of the formidable Mrs Perks, takes us through the history of the dog, some sporting breeds and then both basic and advanced gundog training. Mr Perks is assisted by several dogs in this task, all unnamed and all very much less important than Mr Perks who considers himself to be the country's leading authority on the subject of dog training. sadly for him, the dogs do not agree. 'Dog Training' contains all you will ever need to turn your dog into a Field Trial Champion. There are over a hundred witty cartoons of dogs totally ignoring their trainer and anyone who has ever been humiliated by man's most disobedient friend will love this book.".

B/w photographs by W.W.Rouch, b/w line ills, load tables, notice of change of ownership tipped in.* Gilt trademark and titles within gilt ruled borders, to blue canvas covers, spine titled in gilt. Slight browning internally but cloth clean and bright. This book was published by Curtis's & Harvey Ltd., essentially as publicity material. In the forty-odd years in which this title was in print, the nature of shotgun ammunition changed vastly, and the content of the various editions reflects this. * During the life of this ninth edition, Curtis's & Harvey were taken over by Nobel Industries Limited (later part of ICI). This copy contains a tipped-in note to the effect that the title had become the property of Nobel Industries, with a new publicity department address and "Illustrations of the principal cartridges now loaded with "Smokeless Diamond" Powder. .shown overleaf." Actually, this is a useful and interesting book of some substance, with good, well-chosen photographs illustrating points under discussion in the text. Subjects dealt with include: Improvements of late years; Pressure and testing of pressure; Velocity - mean, muzzle and striking; Rate of ignition; Recoil; Cartridge loading; Loads, patterns and guns - small shot and light charges, larger sizes of shot, pigeon shooting patterns, the twelve bore cartridge, sixteen bore guns, fourteen bore guns; General advice - lots of good material on gun-fitting and marksmanship with advice practical and social (talkative onlookers and stage fright, for instance); Wildfowling - shore shooting with a shoulder gun, black powder in punt guns, punt gun charges, shot sizes for punt guns; Tables of loads, charges and shot sizes. Not a bad give-away in return for a 3d SAE. Bookseller Inventory # 45412

Good-plus in price-clipped dust-wrapper. "The life of Krark, from his birth on Helm Crag to his one-legged old age, is determined by chance and instinct. Rascals like Katka Ragwing show him the way to cope with the harsh needs of crag and moor, in summer and in winter. Against a multitude of natural enemies he fights for survival - kestrel, falcon and osprey; weasel, fox and otter - and in his second year takes Hrakka as a mate. They produce nestlings but all perish when Hrakka dies from poison. He takes a second mate, Snorri, but she too dies at the hand of Man. At the same time, Krark loses a leg in a mole trap, but survives to roam on across his wild domain. Thirty years later he is still able to torment Klee, the kestrel.". Bookseller Inventory # 45386

So many changes have taken place, from the trout-water phenomenon to the upsurge in interest in modern lure-fishing as well as the .refinement of boat fishing techniques. .This new edition will certainly not merely pick up where the first edition left off, thus bringing the reader up to date with Watto's piking pilgrimage.".

Item Description: Harper Fine Angling Books. Foulsham, Norfolk. 2012 1st edition. 4to (190 x 245mm). Pp243. Colour photographs throughout, illustrations. Red boards, spine titled in gilt. Small bump to base of spine else very good in dust-wrapper. Signed by the author. Phil tackles his piking in a way similar to that in which he approaches life in general; he is full-on, enthusiastic and leaves no stone unturned in his desire to achieve his goals. Not only does he take his actual pursuit of pike in a serious, and sometimes single-minded manner however, but he has also never lost sight of the fact that fulfilment in pike fishing encompasses not only the catching of fish, but also the general well being of the sport as a whole. Phil is known not only as a great pike catcher, but as a catcher of great pike, and most remarkably, unlike most of his peers, he has not only caught huge pike from a wide variety of water types, but also by a multitude of methods. Rome, however, wasn't built in a day, and this book charts a journey, tinged at one point with great sadness, which starts on a tiny backwater of a southern river, winds through gravel pits and lowland rivers, to the wide expanses of Irish loughs and the vastness of the Baltic Sea. It follows the learning curve of someone who could never be described as an 'ordinary' pike angler, but a supremely driven one who takes the reader to wherever his passion leads him, as he evolves into an angler who soaks up knowledge and information in his quest for his own version of Nirvana. This book is not only a fascinating insight into what is required to become one of the most successful pike anglers of all time, but also an inspiring one, that will fully merit its place alongside those firm favourites that give such joy to the angler. Designed and produced by Stephen Harper, only 1,000 copies of this first edition have been printed. Bookseller Inventory # 45392

Item Description: FishingBookSender. Sarn, Powys. 2012 1st edition. 8vo (162 x 240mm). Pp304. Sepia and b/w photographs, silk marker ribbon. Brown boards, decorated in gilt. Edition limited to 550 numbered copies. Mint unread copy in dust-wrapper. Edition limited to 550 copies. ANGLING is a series of articles written by Dave Steuart for Angling Magazine from 1967 until 1977. At the time he was also running a busy tackle shop. The chosen episodes are nearly all of coarse fishing although Dave wrote many articles on sea and game fishing at the time. "Once you start reading this book you will realise Dave was far ahead of his time not only with the rods he made but with rigs and methods he used to tremendous success. Today's anglers have much to thank him for. When you consider he was only able to fish on one day per week except for holidays makes this even more remarkable. The articles are packed with valuable tips and ideas on how to read the many waters he fished that wouldalso be viable today. He is a master at long-trotting with a centre pin reel and his prolific catches of barbel, chub, carp and pike would be difficult to surpass with our latter day knowledge and tackle. What also comes across in the book is Dave's impish sense of humour from which a number of well known anglers have been, at times, heckled (in print). Dave was also outspoken in his writings on the subject of dredging and so called improvements to some of our best Southern rivers and through these articles was invited to discuss the problems with the relevant authorities - often too late. This at a time when there were few other bodies to fight the angler's case. The book is full of historical photographs taken at the time by his late wife Kay - also an exceptional angler who often surpassed Dave in catches and personal bests." With introductory material by John Roberts and Brian Harris. The dust-wrapper illustration is by John Searl. Bookseller Inventory # 45417
