Since the late 18th century more than 300 editions have appeared as Walton's name became known everywhere in the land. This lovely hardcover edition is complete with line drawings and illustrations to enhance the reading experience. Walton's attractive style in dialogue and description, his enthusiasm for innocent outdoor recreation and his genial partiality for the past have lifted this work out of the category of handbooks into great literature. Walton explores in sometimes whimsical, sometimes philosophical fashion matters touching upon his great pastime; he includes anecdotes, songs, descriptions of fish and their habitats, and most beautifully the countryside where he fished. "The Compleat Angler," first published in 1653, has become a classic of English literature. Where other angling books are of limited appeal to those who do not fish, "The Compleat Angler" inspires readers from all walks of life to go in search of the timeless English countryside that Walton evokes with such love. Despite the chaos of 17th-Century England, Walton appears to have spent his life in an oasis of calm conviviality and, remarkably, he succeeded in botling it forus to enjoy more and more with each century that glides silently by. Innocent, playful and philosophical by turns, "The Compleat Angler" is not only
