This is an auction for THE COMPLEAT ANGLER by Izaak Walton & Charles Cotton.

"THE COMPLEAT ANGLER is a pastoral discourse on the joys of fishing, written by Izaak Walton and first published in 1653. A much enlarged edition appeared in 1655, and the last edition supervised by the author, published in 1676, included additional material by Charles Cotton. The complete book, including Cotton's additions, has been among the most often reprinted books in English literature. The book opens on the first day of May, as three sportsmen--Auceps the fowler, Venator the hunter, and Piscator the fisherman--compare their favoured pastimes while traveling through the English countryside along the River Lea. The discourse is enlivened by more than 40 songs and poems, country folklore, recipes, anecdotes, moral meditations, quotes from the Bible and from classic literature, and lore about fishing and waterways. The Compleat Angler is based in part on 15th- and 16th-century fishing manuals, and the sections on fly fishing and the making of artificial flies are by Cotton."
