About this Item

1950 1st edition. 8vo (145 x 223mm). Pp176. B/w photograph plates, map. Red cloth, spine titled in gilt. Rather faded & used but good. Lacks dust-wrapper. The travels and angling adventures of a diplomat, from the giant seatrout of the Em to Caribbean big-game fishing. In between come excursions for trout in the Balkans and the Caucasus and fishing expeditions all over the world. "We must leave it to the reader to argue whether this is primarily: 1. An intensely amusing book about the oddities of diplomatic life, chock-full of stories and adventures, by a diplomat who has ranged from Peking to Paris and from Russia to Panama. 2. An unusally delightful book about fishing in most corners of the globe by a fisherman with a very endearing personality." Chapters include: Ignorant youth; Russia and Rumania; Balkan wanderings; First steps in England and Sweden; No fish in China; Hungarian rhapsody; Persian pilgrimage; Copper and fisherman on the beat; Fisherman's progress; Forest, pampas, and deserts of Brazil; Big game fishing; The darkling dagger; Sailfish are where you find them; Lesser game fish of the Pacific; Interlude in the Galapagos; Bonefish and tunny.
