Description:
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1928. First Edition. Thick Quarto. Grey considers the fishes of the South Seas to be the fiercest in the world. He tells his stories of the tuna, sailfish, wahoo, and swordfish which would make any fisherman envious. Mr. Grey caught a 618-pound Silver Marlin, apparently a new species at the time and he tells of the fight of 1040 pound Striped Marlin and includes a photo of this incredibly huge fish along with 48 other photographs taken by the author. A fine bright copy bound in green cloth lettered in gilt, spine lettering gilt, pictorial endpapers, in unclipped pictorial dust jacket with wear along the top edges, a piece torn away at the head and small tear along the bottom of the front panel.

1749 Liger Rustic House Bees Beekeeping Hunting Wine Cuisine Maison Rustique 2v

Louis Liger was a prominent 17th-century French writer known for his works on flora and fauna. He is chiefly remembered for his major work 'Nouvelle Maison Rustique,' or 'The New Rustic House.' Originally titled 'General Economics of Country Goods,' this work went through dozens of editions and reissues following its initial release in 1700. This work covers all aspects of rural life in an encyclopedic form including hunting, gardening, fishing, falconry, wine and beer making, cooking, and bee keeping.

This two-volume sixth edition is filled with 34 fascinating full-page and folding plates as well as 30 in-text woodcut engravings. The 5th-10th editions of 'Maison Rustique' were edited by Henri Besnier.
