"Aspinwall Island is the the gem of ninety islands in Sharbot Lake ... This lake lies in the crest of the divide between the St. Lawrence and the Ottawa."
Beautifully produced, interesting memoir of life and sport in rural Ontario, black bass fishing in Sharbot Lake, camping, and talk around the fire.

A superior copy with fine American provenance: collector and literary patron John Quinn (who bankrolled Joyce during the years of writing Ulysses) and Lindley Eberstadt, the great specialist in Americana and famous sporting book collector.
