Howitt, S[amuel]
The Angler's Manual; or, Concise Lessons of Experience, which the proficient in the delightful recreation of angling will not despise.
Printed by G.F. Harris for Samuel Bagster, Strand, London, Liverpool, 1808. First edition. With twelve etchings by Howitt, signed in the plate 28 pp. 1 vols. Oblong 8vo (6 x 8 in.). Westwood & Satchell's comment, "The etchings good, the text trivial" is not unjustified--the text is more general than useful--but it would be hard for any writing to upstage Howitt's charming images. The book, rebound, brought a high $15 at the Heckscher sale in 1909. Westwood & Satchell, p.10; Heckscher 1055 Nineteenth-century three quarter green polished calf. Some rubbing, dampstaining. A sound copy of a rare book With twelve etchings by Howitt, signed in the plate 28 pp. 1 vols. Oblong 8vo (6 x 8 in.) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
Bookseller: James Cummins Bookseller, ABAA [New York, NY, U.S.A.]
