Forward: Added 1/18/2017 - Simply as an added bonus to facilitate a quicker sale... IF a collector buys these books AND picks them up in person by Jan. 31 , I will include a very nice, vintage Fenwick fly rod, with the book collection.
And will probably lead to another sale, should you fancy other of my many scarce sportsman items. Condition: Most of the books are in Very Good to Near Fine condition. I noticed one has a bit of edge wear/missing material which looks like maybe a mouse nibbled on the edge. Please use the many high-definition photographs to assess the books condition to your satisfaction. I have deliberately decided not to include 18 individual condition reports for the books, so as not to make the listing word heavy.
However, if you would like a verbal condition description of any of the individual books, by all means do not hesitate to request them. Suffice it to say, all of these books, as 1st Edition/Good condition copies, are scarce.This is an opportunity to have an instant, highly collectible fishing library. Or 24 extraordinary Christmas gifts, for special fishing friends. Some of the books have a very light pencil notation, on the frontispiece page. Interesting side note: A single Charles Henry Lester, fishing book went through Sotheby's in 2002... Included below are my quick notes (used to determine a very discounted price-point)... Hunting in Africa East and West. The Log of the North Shore Club.
The Determined Angler and the Brook Trout. Sunshine and Sport in Florida and the West Indies. Meaning, there are actually more than 18 books total. I did NOT add any premium for the fact of the interesting previous ownership... Nor did I add a premium for the convenience of an instant collection.Thank you for looking at this listing.
