      Putnam. London. - 1958 1st edition. 8vo (145 x 222mm). Pp72. B/w illustrations by the author, map. Dark green cloth, spine titled in gilt. Quite foxed o/w good-plus in chipped dust-wrapper. * The first of the modern carp fishing books, published in Putnam's "Fisherman's Choice" series. One of BB's most attractive and collectable books. * 1cm x 2cm chip at head spine. Previous owner's signature on front end-paper. "No species has ["BB"] fished for more keenly or observed more closely than the carp. Ten years ago it was considered that the carp could be caught only by witch-craft or by accident. Today, twenty-pounders are fairly commonplace and there is a rod-caught fourty-four-pounder (the record as this book goes to press) swimming at the London Zoo aquarium. And it is perfectly fair to say that all this has happened through the efforts of "BB". The revolution in carp fishing came about largely as the result of a book "BB" wrote called Confessions of a Carp Fisher. This book encouraged Richard Walker and others to crack the carp's secrets. So it was inevitable that "BB", a founder member of the Carp Catchers Club, whould soon own and stock his private carp lake. This book is the record of that lake and how he turned barren water into a first-class fishery." Chapters include: The way to the water; Stocking the Wood Pool; Carp weather; The island battle; Night fshing; Congo Channel; Hints on carp tackle; Habits of tench; The Little Summer of St. Luke.

Spine very slightly rubbed, mild dust soiling to board edges, faint partial toning to endpapers, an excellent copy in a jacket that is spine tanned, has small chips to corners to small closed tears to top edge of front panel, and some very faint marks to rear panel. First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed by Capote on the front free endpaper, "for Martha Robertson, with love, Truman Capote". The recipient was Martha Hunt Robertson (1931-2014), an art teacher from Guntersville, Alabama, who in 1977 married noted journalist-novelist William Bradford Huie (1910?-1986), of Hartselle, Alabama. Huie was a friend of Truman Capote (also raised in Alabama), and his 1954 book The Execution of Private Slovik (an intense account of the only American soldier executed for desertion during the Second World War), as a work of non-fiction written in a highly literary style, is credited with anticipating the "nonfiction novels" of the 1960s and 1970s such as Capote's In Cold Blood (1966). Breakfast at Tiffany's is rare inscribed - we have only ever handled one other.
