DAY, FRANCIS
British and Irish Salmonidae (Association Copy)
London, Williams and Norgate. 1887, 1st Edition. Original Embossed Boards, Tall 8vo. Association Copy, viii,298,[2]p. with 12 lithographed plates (including 9 colour chromolithographs), text illustrations, in the original blue green cloth. The fine plates are by Miss F. Woolward, made after drawings by the author. "The fish were coloured from nature by Miss Florence Woolward, whose accuracy in delineation needs no remark as it speaks for itself" (From the preface). The first exhaustive study of the sea-trout. This copy bears the bookplate of J.A.Harvie Bown who has added copious short notes in pencil in the margins throughout the book. Many of the notes are initialled by him - e.g. "Do kelts descend tail first i.e. with the head up stream? I think so from personal observation. H.B." Harvie Brown contributed notes to Day's Book ( p.204-205), though apart from the bookplate and H.B.'s dated signature on the title page (1887) there is no evidence that this was a presentation copy to him. Harvie-Brown wrote "The Wonderful Trout" published in 1898 and also most of Scotlands "Vertebrate Fauna" series published by Douglas from the 1880's over twenty years. He wrote four articles in the "Annals of Scottish Natural History": Notes on British Salmonidae (parts 1 and 2), Notes on Salmonidae, and Further Notes on Salmonidae; A Reply to Sir Herbert Maxwell" in 1902. In addition to Harvie Browns signature, there is also the pencilled ownership signature of M.E.Brown (1954) below H.B.'s signature. Brown was the author of "The Trout", a Monograph in Collins New Naturalist Series. Book internally VG with annotations as above; endpapers superficially split; boards appear a little faded and are worn at edges and about spine. E-Mail for further scans. Good+/No Jacket.
