About this Item

[frontis], [12] 7-256 pp. [xxii] [1911]. Dustjacket: very minor nicks and chips on all corners and at head and heel of spine. A few short tears on rear panel. With a new foreword by Thomas Mcguane and a new introduction by Lefty Kreh. 'A Partial Tarpon Bibliography' compiled by Ken Callahan at the back. After an astonishing career on Wall Street, Anthony Weston Dimock pioneered the modern sport of tarpon fishing. This legendary 1911 masterwork embodies all of the expeditionary drama and excitement you would expect pursuing a primitive fish in primitive waters while using primitive equipment. It is a delight--vintage Florida and the Everglades teeming with leaping, crashing, somersaulting fish--defining, in many ways, what a great fishing book should be. One of 950 copies Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 380024
