1 Aflalo, F. G. BEHIND THE RANGES. Parentheses of Travel.
London Martin Secker. 283 p. 1911 1st Ed. Hardcover Very Good No DJ. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾ 
Aflalo, F. G. BEHIND THE RANGES. Parentheses of Travel. 8vo. illus. with 14 photographs. London: Martin Secker. 283 p. 1911. 1st. Ed. [Cat. 71.] 94-0126 s. –“The sportsman, once his wanderings are over, and gout or poverty chains him by the leg, must find what comfort he can in an arm-chair and an atlas.” Aflalo’s travels recount “…its drawbacks as well as its delights, its duststorms as well as its sunsets, its mosquitoes as well as its butterflies, its illusions as well as the joy of it.” With two chapters on fishing, one on places and maps, another on guides or gillies the world over. A wonderful read, and one of my favorites. Book has an Awards plate dated 1919 from Otago Boy’s High School, Dunedin, New Zealand on front end-paper. Some minor edge damp staining on top edge of some plates, not affecting body. Very Good no DJ. [ $50] $45

[Cat. 2017] 17-0133 z. –Comprehensive work on the most famous trout stream in New Zealand. I first fished the Tongariro in 1975 at the start of my yearly trips to NZ. The big changes came after this book’s publication, when the conventional fishing of swinging flies with sinking lines moving downstream was overtaken by upstream fisherman using floating lines with bobbers or indicators and weighted nymphs. The conflicts were acrimonious and frequent. I stopped fishing the river in the mid -1980’s. The river still has exceptional fishing for both rainbow trout & some very large brown trout.
