Crown 4to. The rare history of the prestigious and exclusive South Side Sportsmen's Club of Long Island in the town of Islip in Suffolk County, with descriptions of its fishing pools, streams, hatcheries, buildings, trap shooting, etc., including notes on angling for trout and bass, and the difficulties the club had with brown trout [Heller, 738]. Bruns notes it as "Very Rare" (D-26). One of 105 copies printed in January, 1909. Originally published in greenish black wraps with white paper title label on front wrap. This copy belonged to Club member Frederic W. Rhinelander with his signature and date (February, 1909). He appears on the plate facing page 66. Rhinelander undoubtedly had his copy bound in full leather with gilt rules on upper and lower boards, gilt inner dentelles, and all edges gilt. The spine contains five gilt floral compartments plus the title compartment, with raised spine bands. At some point this was recased with the leather spine applied over new leather, with small chip to toe of original spine. Original front wrap tipped in. Well illustrated with photo plates, large colored folding map. A very good+ and attractive copy of a decidedly rare American sporting book. Bookseller Inventory # ca860
