About This Item

New York: [The De Vinne Press] Printed for Private Distribution to the Author's Friends, 1904. First edition, number 36 of 100 copies printed on Imperial Japan Paper. Photogravure frontispiece, 15 photogravure plates, and 3 color plates of flies. 152, [1] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original parchment-backed boards, printed paper label. Slight toning to spine, otherwise a fine copy. Blue stamp of Edward D. Weekes Oyster Bay, New York on flyleaf. In half blue morocco slipcase and chemise. First edition, number 36 of 100 copies printed on Imperial Japan Paper. Photogravure frontispiece, 15 photogravure plates, and 3 color plates of flies. 152, [1] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. A splendid work of unsurpassed, almost lyrical, prose and superb photogravures - and of predictable rarity. This is one of two versions, and, as it contains 152 pages against 143 in the other, mostly expanding the data on the Salmon, Bruns believes that this may "have been a reserved presentation copy, with additions by the author" Bruns D25; Gee 88; Litchfield 71; Bibliotheca Salmo Salar 74
