WALTON, Isaac

The Complete Angler

London: Strahan & Co., 1844

8vo, pp. 445. Original boards, vellum tips, lettered in gilt on vellum spine. Tissue guards to engravings. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Bookplate to front pastedown. Front board lifting at meeting with vellum spine, light foxing to preliminaries and a little age-toning to margins. A very good copy, the binding (often loose on this weighty book) solid and tight.

Deluxe edition, the fourth in all, no. 192 of 250 numbered copies. With an introductory essay by the volume's editor, John Major (not that one).
Uncommon in any condition, and scarce in as nice a condition as this.
