PROPERTY OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE SANDYS TRUST, LOTS 109-122


WALTON, IZAAK, CHARLES COTTON, AND COL. ROBERT VENABLES

The Universal Angler, made so by three books of fishing: the first written by Mr. Izaak Walton; the second by Charles Cotton, Esq; the third by Col. Robert Venables. London: Richard Marriott, 1676


8vo (148 x 90mm.), Part I with engraved piscatorial title-page, 10 small engravings of fish, 2 pages of music, last leaf blank: Part II with engraved cipher on title-page: Part III with 10 copperplates, first and last leaf blank, contemporary panelled calf, lacking frontispiece in Part III, a few minor tears, title of part II slightly trimmed at right side, rubbed


Fifth edition of Walton's Compleat Anger, the last to be printed in his lifetime and considered by Pforzheimer to be "in many ways the most interesting." It is published here with the first edition of Cotton's Compleat Angler, and the fourth edition (the third extant, since the second edition was entirely destroyed in the fire of 1666) of Venables' Experienc'd Angler. While Cotton's contribution appeared in most subsequent editions of the Compleat Angler, the three authors appeared together only once, in this volume.
