Description:
Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. Imprensa Nacional. 1921. First Edition. Quarto (12 x 9). 101 pp. Sixteen lithograph plates of fish. Text in parallel columns in English and Portuguese. Eleven species of fish are known from the nodules of Barra do Jardim and Simoes, in deposits of the Cretaceous age. The keys identify the best preserved examples. The George S. Myers copy (Professor Myers’s was a long-time Professor of Zoology at Stanford University and colleague of David Starr Jordan). Professor Myers’s wrote on the front end paper, "Dr. Jordan said this was written in 1910!" (it certainly could have been written in 1910 but not published until 1921). It’s also signed and dated by George S. Myers on the front end paper "G. S. Myers / Rio - 1942". Written and published during the age when Systematics ruled the day. The book is bound in black leather spine with gilt titles and blue marbled boards. A rare work. Light edge wear to the binding. Very good..

Orlando, Florida. Kepcor. 1984. First Edition. Large Octavo (9 x 6 ½). 705 pp. including a list of suppliers, tiers, bibliography, glossary. Introduction by Charles F. Waterman. There's one hell of a lot flies listed herein - some 16,000. Flies for every fish that swims in saltwater, freshwater, waters north and south, east and west, lakes and streams, creeks, drainage ditches, ponds, sloughs, and lawn pools; streamers, dries, nymphs, wets, terrestrials, all intended to entice trout, steelhead, salmon, bass, dorado, tarpon, bonefish, cuda, lungfish, big crabs and baby Orcas; there all here, thousands of them. Does a fly fisher need or want even a small percentage of the patterns listed? Likely not. But it's nonetheless interesting to look over the course of several centuries and the subsequent explosion of fly patterns and realize that so many fly fishers assigned near Mensa qualities to creatures with pea-sized brains.
