RACKHAM, Arthur / WALTON, Izaak The Compleat Angler Or The Contemplative Man's Recreation. being a discourse of rivers, fishponds, fish and fishing not unworthy the perusal of most anglers.

Harrap, 1931.

First edition illustrated by Rackham. This copy in the publisher's deluxe binding of full brown leather, with gilt titles, spine vignette and blind stamped border. Top edge gilt. Pictorial endpapers showing silhouettes. Twelve colour plates under captioned tissue guards and numerous black and white drawings. A near fine copy, spotting to the page edges.

Walton's discursive descriptions of angling and the English countryside, have served to make this book one of the most reprinted titles in the English language. The river side setting is perfect for Rackham's observations of nature, rippling water, overhanging willow trees, summer skies and scudding clouds.
