WALTON, Izaak / RACKHAM, Arther

RACKHAM, Arther 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. 4to. Blue cloth with gilt lettering and vignettes to spine and upper cover and pictorial endpapers. Twelve colour plates by Rackham and numerous line drawings throughout. A near fine copy, bright and fresh.

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.
