Prepared with the benefit of a professional surveyor’s eye Augustus Grimble’s Salmon Rivers of Ireland is of seminal importance to the study of both the nature and extent of the Irish inland salmon fisheries. Proprietors, historical catches, ghillies, tackle makers, and the extent of the major fisheries are all discussed and given in order of province, together with opening seasons and the best methods of fishing. An important work issued at a time when the Irish salmon fisheries were at their zenith and before the decline subsequent to the introduction of hydro-electric schemes. The inserted publisher’s slip dated Nov. 1902 records the late publication: ‘due to the entire destruction by fire of the sheets, type, and blocks on the eve of publication in August’. Augustus Grimble (1840-1925),was the proprietor of a shooting and estate agency.
