Overview

The National Book League was a precursor to the current Booktrust, and was set up in 1924 by the Society of Bookmen in order to promote reading, particularly among the young. To that end, the NBL issued Reader's Guides on a variety of subjects, each written by an author with expertise in that field and containing an annotated bibliography of recommended titles on the subject. Arthur Ransome was a keen fisherman as well as a famous children's author, and fishing and other outdoor pursuits feature often in his books. This Reader's Guide was published in 1955 and features Ransome's recommendations for books on fishing, broken down by varieties of fish and fishing practices.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Ransome creates a recommended list of books numbering almost one hundred titles split into in nine categories: The Indispensables, Trout Fishing, Grayling, Sea-Trout Fishing, Salmon, Coarse Fishing, Fly-Tying, Miscellaneous and Older Books which turns out to be a moving and enlightening walk around the shelves of his own personal library. Rarely before has a list read as poetry but this one does.' John Andrews, caughtbytheriver.net
