C.O. Minchin

Bought on Thursday morning from a gentleman dealer a parcel of ephemera relating to the author and angler C.O. Minchin.  A portrait of him taken in at The Wykeham Studios in 1911, a copy of his book 'Sea Fishing' published in the same year by Adam & Charles Black (London) and a silver medal struck by Spink & Son of Piccadilly, awarded to Minchin for his capture of an 18lbs. Coalfish off Looe on 12th September 1900.
