Number 225 of 250 copies, initialled by the publisher. With hand-colored frontispiece entitled "Dean Sage's Favorite Flies" by Charles DeFeo (signed by him), an additional color plate after watercolor by Ogden M. Pleissner (signed by him), several black and white plates. 1 vols. 4to. A book of almost legendary importance, recounting the author's adventures at Camp Harmony on the Restigouche River in New Brunswick, and drawing upon his long experience fishing the river. Dean Sage's contributions to angling literature are few in number but profoundly influential: "Ten Days' Sport on Salmon Rivers", published in the Atlantic in 1875, is a classic account. His library catalogue (2 vols.,1896, 1904) remains an important document in the history of angling bibliography and collecting. Sage's section on "The Atlantic Salmon," in Salmon and Trout (1902), is a synthesis of his own first hand knowledge as a fisherman and his assessment of the extensive literature. The Ristigouche and Its Salmon Fishing remains the work for which Sage is best known. A facsimile of the first edition, with additional material, including the signed color plates, an introduction by Arnold Gingrich, and "A Notice of Dean Sage" by Dewitt Sage.
