Leather-backed dark green decorative cloth gilt. Inner hinge starting very slightly, but a very good clean copy. "A book to be set apart and in the best company. It is one of the most sterling and attaching of modern angling books, and possesses several of the qualities that have rendered Iz. Walton's writings household words - his simplicity, naivite and honest benevolence." (Westwood & Satchell). "We have received many requests for this classic Victorian memoir. William Henderson's book is a richly entertaining account of fishing adventures, mostly in the North (the author was a carpet manufacturer from Durham) on such rivers as the Wear, Coquet and Tweed. Henderson knew some legendary fly-tyers of the time, including John Younger, the St Boswells shoemaker and author, James Wright of Sprouston (to whom we owe the Greenwell's Glory among other historic patterns), and Percival S. Wilkinson, whose famous salmon fly was regarded for years as the essential Tweed medicine." (Flyfisher's Classic Library catalogue, 2003). Dark green leather-backed cloth, titled in gilt on spine and upper board, ornately decorated with gilt spine vignette and upper board design of fish and line; heavy boards and bevelled edges. 8vo.

(Verlagswerbung). Nissen ZBI, 2713. - Philipp Leopold Martin (1815 - 1885) war ein deutscher Naturforscher, Ornithologe und Tierpräparator. Obwohl Autodidakt, war er einer der bedeutendsten Tierpräparatoren seiner Zeit. Er gilt als der Begründer der modernen Dermoplastik und als Pionier des modernen, der Volksbildung verpflichteten Naturkundemuseums. Auf ihn geht u. a. die Einführung von "Dioramen" zurück. Das sind große "Schaukästen" die Tiergruppen vor gemaltem Hintergrund in ihrer natürlichen Umgebung zeigen, wie sie auch heute noch in zahlreichen Museen zu sehen sind. In seiner Aufsatzreihe „Das deutsche Reich und der internationale Thierschutz" verwendete er als Erster, bereits 1871 den Begriff „Naturschutz" in seiner heutigen Bedeutung und wurde damit zum einem der Vordenker des Naturschutzes in Deutschland. Sein hier vorliegender Magnum Opus war über Jahrzehnte hinweg das grundlegende Standardwerk für Tierpräparatoren. Besonders gesucht ist der von Bruno Dürigen bearbeitete, umfangreiche Teil über Haltung und Zucht von Reptilien und Amphibien sowie die Zucht der ersten tropischen Aquarienfische (Makropoden) in Teil 3, zweite Hälfte. - Einband leicht berieben, Gelenke und Kapitale etwas stärker, Ecken leicht bestoßen, Titel Band 1 mit zwei, die restlichen Titelblätter und der vordere Vorsatz mit je einem kleinen Bibliotheksstempel, stellenweise etwas gebräunt bzw. braunfleckig.

        Two Trips to Gorilla Land and the Cataracts of the Congo

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, And Searle, 1876. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, And Searle,, 1876. 2 volumes, octavo (218 x 140 mm). Near contemporary brown half morocco, marbled boards, raised bands to spines, titles to spines gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Volume I: one coloured folding map as frontispiece, 17 illustrations in text. Volume II: engraved frontispiece with tissue guard, 4 plates, four illustrations in text, one coloured folding map. Contemporary owner signature to half-titles. Spines a little faded, otherwise a truly excellent set. First editions. In need of employment, Burton sought a diplomatic role, preferably as consul in Damascus. While this was denied, he was offered the same role but in Fernando Po (now Bioko). While Burton accepted the position on 27 March 1861, he considered the island to be '"the very abomination of desolation". He slipped away from the post at every opportunity for excursions on the African mainland or to meet Isabel in the Canaries or England' (ODNB). Burton remained at Fernando Po for four years before being transferred to Brazil and Two Trips to Gorilla Land collects Burton's travel and ethnographic writings from this time. The ground-work for Volume I was done in 1862: in March, 'inspired by the discoveries of Paul Belloni du Chaillu, he sailed for Gabon to look for gorillas' (Howgego). Anchoring in Libreville, Burton made excursions up the Gabon River, encountered various tribes, including the Mpongwe, as well as spent a week with the Fan people (believed by many to be cannibals). Volume II recounts a journey from Fernando Po to Loanga, outlines a short excursion to South America and the Burtons' stay in Sao Paolo, as well as describing Burton's journey up the Congo.

        A Journey To The Interior of The Earth [A Journey to the Centre/Center of the Earth]

      London; Ward Lock and Tyler, [1876]. London; Ward Lock and Tyler, [1876], 1876. Classic Sci-Fi. Pp.267 + catalogue. A very early edition, undated, but research shows this to be the second English translation of 1876 (by F.A.Malkson, who is noted on the preface)- the first English translation was in 1871, published by Griffith Farran; This is therefore the FIRST EDITION under this slightly amended title. A scarce printing well preserved in the publisher's pictorial brown cloth binding, blocked in gilt and black, with coated yellow endpapers. Some light, general wear, spine lean, neat owner label to flyleaf. A very good copy. One of Mr.Verne's most popular tales with an influence stretching across the works of Lovecraft and Burroughs right up to the present crop of writers who remain fascinated with the possibility of the vast uncharted catacombs 'neath our feet. In many ways Verne's work can be categorised as fiction aimed at 'filling dark, empty spaces', this being one of his more deft attempts.
