352 pp. The first of a three-volume series on the history of the American fish hook traces the origins of the hook industry from its humble beginnings in Brooklyn to its position as a major competitor both in foreign and domestic markets by 1900. The product of more than ten years of research, this work covers - much of it for the first time ever in print - the detailed history of the manufacturers and wholesalers who provided Americans with billions of hooks during this era. Fully illustrated with over 200 images, including many of rare and collectable fish hooks, the first volume is 352 pages and should appeal to fishermen, collectors, and history buffs alike.
