We Found an Amazing Book

Look closely at the page above. Those aren’t pictures of fishing lures. They are fishing lures. The book they are in is titled W. Blacker’s art of angling, and complete system of fly making and dying [sic] of colours : illustrated with plates shewing the difference processes of the fly before it is finished, giving the angler a perfect knowledge of every thing requisite to complete him in this noble art. We have a copy in Special Collections that, sadly, we can’t let you check out. But as part of our Internet Archive project we have scanned our copy so you can view it online. The library has scanned over 5000 books for this project and you can read them all by following this link.
