Book Description Adam and Charles Black, London, 1977. Hard Back. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First English Edition. The dust wrapper is creased along all edges. The book has an inscription in the front end paper. When one considers what an important part the humble fish hook has played in the life of Man, it is surprising that so little has been written about it. In this book the story of the hook is traced from the caveman of a million or more years ago to the fishermen of today. The story of the modern hook which is the greater part of this book, is told partly through the history of a Norwegian firm whose name is familiar to all anglers - O. Mustard & Son. The closed world of family and factory is contrasted with the life of the roving adventures who made up the sales force, embarking on month and year-long journeys into sometimes unexplored territory, sending back samples and intelleigence reports from the far corners of the earth.
