Angling and Sporting Highlights from the Richard Beagle Collection, Part I

The first of two auctions by PBA Galleries of Richard Beagle’s Collection of Angling and Sporting Books, on June 1, 2017, featured rare and important works on fishing, plus scarce accounts of big game hunting and adventures in the wild.  The books were gathered over multiple decades by Mr. Beagle, who began collecting sporting books in the early 1960’s, frequenting the many used book stores in the greater Los Angeles area and corresponding with sporting book dealers, including a number in England.
