Philip Allan & Co. 1924 1900318210 / 9781900318211 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good No Jacket Book Macgregor, Miriam. 
Hardcover, some light foxing to page edges, head and foot of spine slightly frayed and corners bumped but otherwise in Very Good condition. First edition, b&w photographs. Blurb from 2006 Edition: Hundreds of books about trout fishing have been published but only a handful survive for long after their first appearance. For a fishing book to remain in demand over more than a decade is exceptional. Beyond this, a tiny number survive, like trophy salmon, to reach the status of classics. Among these, the everlasting volumes which live from one generation of anglers to the next, the most entertaining is "Where the Bright Waters Meet" by Harry Plunket Greene, first published in 1924. Harry was a rare character from an Anglo Irish family. Six feet seven inches tall with a commanding presence, he was once a professional singer on the concert hall stage in the days before microphones and the cinema. He knew all about holding and delighting an audience and these skills he brings to the magic pages of his book, a wonderful mixture of humour, passion for nature and love of sport which rivals the idyllic descriptions of Izaak Walton himself. S30.

A Rock Solid., Lent, John.
12 Lent, John. A Rock Solid.
Dreadnought 1978 Limited Edition Soft cover Near Fine Book 
Folded card covers in an illustrated card slipcase, 8 loose folded stanzas, some very light shelfwear to slipcase but otherwise in Near Fine condition. Limited edition of 100, unpaginated but 8 loose folded stanzas in a tri-folded card wrap contained in a slipcase. From Wikipedia: A Rock Solid plays off the various senses of the term rock: geological, musical, and etymological, with emphasis on its derivation from the Old High German rucken: "to cause to move". The term solid relates to the Cubist-influenced geometric structure, an insight prompted by the epigraph from Albert Gleizes and Jean Metzinger's Du Cubisme (1912). Combined, the "rock solid" signposts an emphasis on fluidity and stasis. The title's indefinite article foregrounds this rock solid as one petite narrative among many; that is, the structure and sense are not a univocal, universalising "truth". The relationship between words and painting, tied to the acoustic suggestion in the volume's title, stress the poet's inter-related concerns with a totality of experience. A Rock Solid "has captured a sense of experimentation with form [...] It is rare in literature for a reader to have a glimpse of the poet chipping through the rock solid of experience in order to see the poem" (Meyer, 88-90).[7] Meyer's sole review of the book also comments on its packaging and how the reader is "sorting through a pile of debris". This comment underlines the reader's engagement, where sorting through the cards enforces reflection upon the experience and the reading process.
