The Medlar Press will be publishing Frederick Buller's new fishing book, 'Fish and Fishermen', in early October. This is how it has been described by the Courtauld Institute of Art:

'This is a most unusual book. Although medieval wall paintings in English churches have been the subject of serious study for well over a century, this is the first full-scale study to examine the evidence they provide for a particular activity in the Middle Ages - in this case, fishing. Often reading like a detective story, it is based not only on a vast knowledge of angling history gained through a lifetime of study, but also on visiting some 130 churches with relevant wall paintings, on tracking down antiquarian watercolours of paintings now lost or barely legible, and on correspondence with leading experts in related disciplines. The result is a pioneering and original contribution to knowledge, and a visual delight.'

As fishing books go, it's quite unique and will appeal to anyone with an interest in fishing and its history.
