[ANGLING] [SIMMONS, DWIGHT M.] American Angling Reminiscences 1895-1940 [box title].
[Florida?: 1895-1940]. Loose autograph manuscript leaves with original cardboard covers, preserved in custom chemise and clamshell box. 10 x 8 inches; unpaginated; autograph manuscript of angling records, comments, and narrative descriptions. Upper board a bit worn with loss to corners, occasional toning and foxing to text leaves, but otherwise a very good record in a neat hand.
Note to upper cover reads, "Found this in Dwight M. Simmons personal belongings when he died in Boca Raton, Fla. Feb. 7, 1985". The first leaf is headed, "My largest fish of the various Species caught during my life in Salt Water," and lists in chart form the species, weight, and location of catch for each. Following are narrative descriptions of each of these catches in a neat hand.
