Izaak Walton (au) & Charles Cotton (au); Edmund H. New (il). This classic work on fish & fishing has become one of the most reprinted books in the history of British letters. It is a unique combination of manual & meditation, & the way in which the personality of the author pervades the whole shape & flavor of the book, is the reason for its lasting appeal. Three sportsmen, a fisherman (Piscator, who is Walton himself), a huntsman (Venator) & a fowler travel from Tottenham to Ware up the River Lea. They discuss the merits of fishing & Venator becomes a pupil of Piscator, & is introduced to the arts of angling for freshwater fish, along with a wealth of advice about watercraft, pisciculture & country lore.
