All of the books in the edition have the same text by Ted Williams and an Introduction by Stephen Bodio, eight hand watercolored etchings depicting the life cycle of the Atlantic Salmon, four woodengravings and six linecuts by Master Printmaker, Alan James Robinson. Each book includes an extra suite of all the above artwork.
The twenty-six copies in this special edition will also include: a full color leather onlay panel mounted on the cover depicting a Royal Wulff dryfly (instead of the Jock Scott); The Atlantic Salmon, an essay by Lee Wulff previously published in Salmon on a Fly and an original Afterword by Joan Wulff, reflecting on Lee Wulffs life and accomplishments. Joan Wulff will sign each colophon page. Each of the twenty-six copies will also come with a Royal Wulff dryfly tied by Poul Jorgensen mounted in a shadowbox in the cover of the protective linen tray-case. Price $3750.
The five extra-illustrated books will include: all of the above; a Royal Wulff dryfly tied by Lee Wulff (tied without a vise); three other Wulff dryflies tied by Poul Jorgensen mounted in the cover of the protective tray-case; and nine original watercolors, eight depicting the life cycle of the Atlantic Salmon (similar compostions of the etchings in the book) and a portrait of Lee Wulff.
