From the Preface: "In preparing this volume, my desire has been, not merely to describe the various rivers and lochs of Scotland in which the salmon angler may cast his line, but also ...to refer to points connected with the conservation or improvement of the salmon fisheries.

I know full well that suggestions given officially in blue books do not generally reach the notice of those to whom ...they will be of interest, so I take this opportunity of offering a few opinions and pointing a few morals based upon what I conceive to be the broad lines of salmon fishery regulation. ...my business is really to study the general interests of our salmon fisheries."

Bindings tight and square. Text clean, light even toning with occasional foxing. Moderate handling wear with rubbed spine bands and corners. Top edge gilt.
