Henry A. Sherwin (angling bookplate)

Literature

Wing C-3788 (giving priority to this imprint); Westwood and Satchell pp. 59-60

Catalogue Note

FIRST EDITION, published anonymously. "Chetham's prefaces are in Diogenes' vein, curt and caustic; he escapes from the category of manual makers, and takes rank as one of the original writers on the sport" (Westwood). An unusually nice example.
