First published in 1994, Flytyer's Masterclass showcases the talents of British fly-tyer Oliver Edwards. Using his excellent knowledge of entomology and recognising specific characteristics of each species of fly he is creating, Edwards has developed his trademark of ultra realistic flies which are highly regarded for their near perfect imitation to the natural. Featuring patterns for the baetis nymph, ephemerella nymph, rhyacophila larva, and Klinkhamer special. For this new edition the publisher has commissioned new photographs by Terry Griffiths which depict each fly in stunning detail. It has been produced in a hardback spiral-bound format so that the book may be opened flat for use at the vice. A fine de luxe leather-bound edition, limited to only 120 copies, was produced simultaneously by The Flyfisher's Classic Library. Each de luxe copy carries a real fly tied by the author and set inside a bespoke mount within the front board. "It is a really seminal book by probably the greatest fly-tyer of our generation." (Magnus Angus).

The Mind of the Master Class

History and Faith in the Southern Slaveholders' Worldview

Author: Elizabeth Fox-Genovese,Eugene D. Genovese

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Category: History

The Mind of the Master Class tells of America's greatest historical tragedy. It presents the slaveholders as men and women, a great many of whom were intelligent, honorable, and pious. It asks how people who were admirable in so many ways could have presided over a social system that proved itself an enormity and inflicted horrors on their slaves. The South had formidable proslavery intellectuals who participated fully in transatlantic debates and boldly challenged an ascendant capitalist ('free-labor') society. Blending classical and Christian traditions, they forged a moral and political philosophy designed to sustain conservative principles in history, political economy, social theory, and theology, while translating them into political action. Even those who judge their way of life most harshly have much to learn from their probing moral and political reflections on their times - and ours - beginning with the virtues and failings of their own society and culture.
