THE PIKE print ( Esox Lucius)


These very beautiful original chromolithographs are from the "Sporting Fish of Great Britain," (The game and coarse fish of the United Kingdom) by H. Cholmondeley-Pennell, published in London in 1886.

The coloured prints have been heightened with gum arabic, and real gold and silver, to enhance the detail and sheen of the fish’s scales -  and they glisten under the light. 

Cholmondeley-Pennell (1837-1913), was Her Majesty’s Inspector of Sea Fisheries, editor of the Fisherman's Magazine and Review, and a very successful author of angling books including: Fishing Gossip, Salmon and Trout, The Modern Practical Angler, Pike and other Coarse Fish, The Book of the Pike.
