 I just got a 1948  first edition book called ,'Ice Fishing For Everybody' by Byron Dalrymple for 10 bucks with shipping .A hardcover book with dustcover that's well worth the price I feel . Lantern Press Publishers

  A few cool photos of old classic equipment . 257 pgs. of what should be fun reading!
