This lot is part of the Dr. Thomas Langworthy Hook & Harness Collection. From a historical perspective, Dr. Langworthy's Collection is the most important collection of any American fishing tackle category to have ever been sold. Never before have we seen such a completely represented history by example - chronicling the evolution of fishing devices through more than a century of development and innovation. The large number of examples from this single collection appearing in reference guides due to their rarity, condition or variation from the known is unequaled. It would be hard to imagine a more comprehensive gathering - in any category. The public sale of this collection provides an unparalleled opportunity for collectors, investors and tackle enthusiasts to view and purchase the rarest and most pristine examples of patented, unusual and previously unknown American fishing tools and devices ever offered for sale. The importance of this monumental gathering cannot be overstated.
