A New copy sealed in publisher's shrinkwrap.>>Wood, Arnold. A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE COMPLETE ANGLER OF IZAAK WALTON AND CHARLES COTTON. Being a Chronologically Arranged List of the Several Editions and Reprints, From the First Edition MDCLII until the Year MCM. Oversized Octavo. pp.ix.207. originally New York: Charles Scribner's 1900. Issak Walton, 1593-1683, English writer. He wrote one of the most famous books in the English language, The Compleat Angler; or, the Contemplative Man's Recreation. The first edition appeared in 1653, and it was reissued frequently with additional material; the last edition in Walton's lifetime appeared in 1676. The book not only describes the technique of angling, it draws a picture of peace and simple virtue that was Walton's protest against the civil wars taking place at the time. He also wrote several biographies, including ones of John Donne (1640), Sir Henry Wotton (1651), and George Herbert (1670), all of who were his friends. Wood's bibliography is quite scarce, appearing in 1900 in an edition of only 120 copies. To our knowledge it has not been reprinted. The great benefit of Wood's bibliography is an illustration of the title page provided for each edition of Walton's classic work. Full collations are provided for each title. Extremely hard-to-find. Besterman 6481.
