Information
First edition, first print hardback of THE INCOMPLEAT ANGLER: A Light Cast Over River and Loch by Robin Lowes and published by Third Millennium Publishing Limited, Surrey in 1999. Signed by Lowes on the title page. Foreword by Lord Nickson KBE DL. With full numberline 1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2 on the copyright page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean black cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine), with minor wear to the pictorial dust jacket which is not price clipped (light creasing to the edges). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

After a distinguished naval career, Robin Lowes worked in industry. Despite this, he has lived all his life in the country, either in Sussex or the Western Highlands of Scotland. He has a passion for the countryside and its wildlife and became a fishing fanatic at an early age. As an amateur photographer of note, his work has graced many magazines front cover.

The Incompleat Angler Intended as a tribute to "The Compleat Angler", this book presents a light-hearted description of the author's fishing memories over many years, together with his photographs of the events he describes.

"'Isaak Walton, dedicating to his 'most honoured Friend, John Offley' wrote: You are assured, though there be ignorant men of another belief, that Angling is an Art : and you know that Art better than others ; and that this is truth is demonstrated by the fruits of that pleasant labour which you enjoy, when you purpose to give rest to your mind, and divest yourself of your more serious business, and, which is often, dedicate a day or two to this recreation.

At which time, if common Anglers should attend you, and be eyewitnesses of the success, not of your fortune, but your skill, it would doubtless beget in them an emulation to be like you...'

Reading Robin Lowes will certainly 'beget an emulation' to be like him. He has modestly entitled this book The Incompleat Angler but it is obvious, as Lord Nickson, - a lifelong fisherman and in the forefront of the battle to save the Atlantic Salmon, - says in his Foreword that 'he has underplayed both his great expertise as a fisherman and his wide fishing experience'.

His lovely book Tales of Four Seasons was described as a light-hearted ramble through the seasons in word and wonderful photography. In The Incompleat Angler he has provided us with a delightfully light-hearted description, - and wonderful photographs - of his exciting fishing memories over many years and in many parts of the world.

His obvious fascination in all aspects of natural history comes through and ensures that the book will also delight those who have never handled a rod."

160 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs within the text.
