Eric Daglish

Eric Fitch Daglish (29 August 1892 – 5 April 1966)[1] was a British engraver and author. He illustrated classics by Izaak Walton, Henry David Thoreau, Gilbert White and W. H. Hudson with exquisite wood engravings.[2] Daglish also authored a number of natural history and wildlife/countryside books. Many of his books are now out of print but the originals are sold over the Internet.

He died in 1966. He is survived by two sons (twins) and one daughter from his first marriage to Alice Archer, and by one daughter and a son from his second marriage to Esther Lena Rutland. His son Stephen Daglish has conducted and published research on the tracing the origins of the Daglish family name.[citation needed]
