About this Item

160 pp. Hardcover Limited Edition one of 231 copies. An un-numbered unsigned copy. The first book ever written about the work of master craftsman and inventive genius, Edward vom Hofe. The history of this famous reel maker and his extraordinary reels has been elusive until now. Whether you collect fishing tackle, deal in antiques, or just want to learn more about a treasured family heirloom, you値l find this ground-breaking work invaluable. If you've ever looked at an Edward vom Hofe reel and wondered what model it was, when it was made, how rare it was, or what it was worth, this book is for you. This volume puts the solid information you値l need at your fingertips. A chronology of company names and addresses allows the reader to date many of the products produced. Every cataloged reel he made is identified with detailed descriptions and photos. Flow charts allow for the identification of early model reels which do not contain serial numbers. For reels which do contain serial numbers, the code is revealed so each reel can now be dated. A value guide, based on years of accumulated data from private sales and auctions, is included for each model. History buffs will find a complete family history that begins with his fathers immigration, and follows Edward through his apprenticeship, business beginnings, marriage and children. Profuse use of charts and photos show Edward, his record fish, residential and business addresses, and the Fulton Street showroom. For years, misconceptions and assumptions about the man and his business have be repeated so many times that what was fiction is now considered fact. Contrary to popular belief he did not arrive at Ellis Island, NY, he was not a watchmaker, and his first business address was not 102 Fulton Street. These and numerous other historical inaccuracies are debunked and many new and surprising facts are uncovered! Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 180057
