(Description) Light bump to corner from shipping, esle new and unread! ***(Synopsis) Howells was an intensely private individual, and he valued his privacy most highly during his fishing sojourns. He once wrote, “I hide in the bushes so my customers can't find me …” Howells was also very secretive about his building techniques; but, with a limited group of rod builders, he willingly shared ideas. Thus, Howells craft lives on. In this, the first full biography written on Howells, author Joseph H. Beelart Jr. has tapped into archives, private letters, and unpublished material to craft a moving portrait of a true American artist. We’ve always had Howells rods; now we have the story behind the rods. Howells left us five logbooks, 2,000 letters, 1,000 photographs, as well as boxes of shop receipts, cancelled checks and the like. He was a man who devoted his life to all aspects of the sport of fly fishing. But the personal price he paid for pursuing his love of fly fishing was heavy and his time with us was short. No longer able to fish, less than three years after stepping from his shop, he died, alone, AB01229.

Near Fine 4to Softcover, 
(Description) 450 handwritten pages with over 500 color photographs and illustrations. Limited to 100 signed and numbered copies with an original plate drawn by the Author for each book. ***(Synopsis) Contained within Reels & Making Them is a complete second book entitled Aerials, presenting John's innovative approach to hand-crafting the beautiful and highly functional Aerial reels originated by Henry Coxon in the late 19th century. John's minimalist approach to reel building is based on hand-working tools and techniques and does not require machine tools. The information on laying out complex parts and fabricating them with simple tools and the sections on making screws (including details on John's novel screw slotting jig) are practical and enlightening. In addition to the wealth of reelmaking information, Reels & Making Them also chronicles John's life as a fly tyer, angler and reelsmith. For instance, John recalls meeting famed reelmaker Ari Hart at an angling show in San Francisco, leading to a life-long friendship. Tales of John's childhood raising ducks and stories of fish and fishing will appeal to all anglers., AB01062.

As New book 8vo - (7¾ - 9¾ tall) Hardcover, in Slipcase
(Description) From its founding at the residence of Theodore Roosevelt in 1887, one of the primary goals of the Boone and Crockett Club has been to disseminate information about wilderness areas and the wild game that inhabits those spaces. Through their own publications, and very selectively through approved works of other publishers, the Boone and Crockett Club has and continues to realize the vision of its founders, here most recently with A Bibliography of American Sporting Books by M. L. Biscotti. Arranged alphabetically by author, the book is completely indexed by title as well which facilitates easy and rapid use as a quick reference and provides the framework for more leisurely investigation into general subjects, authors and titles. The author is widely considered an authority on the bibliographic aspects of sporting books and a more thorough, accurate and complete examination of this subject is unimaginable. This is the author’s magnum opus and we are thrilled to be part of it. This book will be the standard reference for many years to come., C0178.

(Description) One set of the 3 Limited Edition set of 100 copies (matching numbered) signed and numbered by the Author on publisher's bookplates. This listing is for all three books together and will not be split up. ***Synopsis - The Chronological History of Penn Reels, 1932-1957) One of the greatest success stories in the history of fishing tackle is the Penn Fishing Tackle Manufacturing Co. of Philadelphia, Penn. Founded by Otto Henze in the teeth of the great depression, Henze revolutionized the field of saltwater angling, making the sport affordable for the working man by creating brilliantly simple and rugged fishing reels that would stand up to generations of use. Here, for the first time ever, Penn reel historian and collector Michael Cacioppo takes you through the history of Penn year by year, from its founding in 1932 through its 25th anniversary year of 1957. ***Synopsis - The Penn Reel Collector's Companion and Price Guide (ISBN:9781936702886) A companion volume to Mike Cacioppo’s The Chronological History of Penn Reels, 1932-1957 — considered by many to be “The Blue Book” for Penn reel collectors — this book brings together a veritable treasure of Penn reel information that did not fit the parameters of the first book. In addition, The Collector’s Companion includes a detailed Price Guide to all Penn reels sold by the firm in the first 25 years of its existence. The essays include detailed information on the Penn Prototype Models F and K, the earliest days of Penn reels, the Penn Sea Hawk, the Sea Ford, the Bay Side, the Long Beach, Quick Take-Apart Penns, the indomitable Squidder, the legendary Senators, Penn trade reels, left-handed Penns, color variations of Penn reels, South African exports, light tackle Penn casting reels in the pre-war era, Penn Anniversary reels, the Penn formula, and hot rod Penns of alantani.com. The Price Guide includes individual listing of every model Penn offered year-by-year from 1932 through 1957, with prices included for every known reel. Based on the author’s experience with buying and selling thousands of Penn reels, as well as closely following the Penn reel market for over a decade, the prices will help collectors and resellers alike better ascertain the value of their vintage Penn reel. ***Synopsis for A Documentary History of Penn Reels, 1932 - 1957 (ISBN: 9781945565014) This companion volume to The Chronological History of Penn Reels, 1932-1957 and The Penn Reel Collector’s Companion & Price Guide, 1932-1957, the long-awaited A Documentary History of Penn Reels, 1932-1957 contains rare documents and photographs pertaining to Penn history during its first 25 years. It is divided into three sections: Section One, which covers original documents and letters to and from Penn and photos from Penn’s first ledger book; Section Two, which contains a complete set of Penn catalogs from this period; and Section Three, a photographic essay of Penn during this era. A must for any Penn collector! Here, for the first time ever, is a complete set of Penn Fishing Tackle Manufacturing Co. catalogs and other documents and photos pertaining to its first 25 years of history. From the unnumbered Penn flyer for the Model K, to Catalog #1 in 1933 through Catalog #20 in 1957, this volume reproduces every page of every Penn catalog during the years 1932-1957, including rare pocket catalogs. It also includes everything from correspondence between Otto Henze and other tackle makers, to images of the first sales ledgers, to photos of the factory floor. This work will serve as a standard reference for many years, as well as a great companion to the previous two Penn histories in this series. A must for any Penn reel collector, dealer, or historian!, AB01309.
