Includes four attractive plates after watercolors by H. Richard Boehm, including the much-admired female fly-fishing plate. Extremely attractive copy in the pictorial trade binding, which is signed with a monogram -- "H.B."? -- which we do not recognize, but may in fact be that of the book's illustrator, H. Richard Boehm (though we note no stylistic similarity between the illustrations and the cover design). BLEILER (Checklist, 1972) p.47. Octavo. Publisher's decorated cloth, stamped in colors on spine and front cover; 318pp + pp publisher's ads. Inserted frontispiece, facsimile manuscript leaf, and three leaves of plates.
