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, hand colored (possibly later). 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. This book, rebound, brought a high $15 at the Heckscher sale in 1909. Westwood & Satchell, p.10; Heckscher 1055 Original printed boards, uncut, the upper cover reproducing the title page. Rebacked, drab spine; some wear to boards. Bookplate of Bibliotheca Piscatoria Lynniana, with small library stamp on front pastedown and in margins of p. i of "Advertisement" only; some marginal soiling, but overall a pleasing, very good copy. Preserved in a handsome red morocco-backed slipcase, cloth wrapper With twelve etchings by Howitt, signed in the plate, hand colored (possibly later). 28 pp. 1 vols. Oblong 8vo (6 x 8 in.) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
