Walton's Angler was first published 1653 with three revised and enlarged editions quickly following. For the fifth edition, Walton invited his close friend and fellow angler, Charles Cotton to contribute a continuation mainly devoted to fly fishing. This was published as 'part two' of the fifth edition of Walton's Angler and in conjunction with the fourth edition of Venables's The Experienc'd Angler the three works were published under the collective title of the The Universal Angler, but each of the works was also available to be bought individually.
That edition was the last to be published in Walton's lifetime, however, "The union of Walton and Cotton has been perpetuated in all subsequent reprints..." - Thomas Westwood (The Chronicle of The Compleat Angler)
