The compleat angler, or The contemplative man's recreation, being a discourse of fish and fishing for the perusal of anglers by Izaak Walton( Book )

104 editions published between 1668 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than a guide to the subtle intricacies of the sport, Walton's treatise is a graceful portrait of a simple life made rich by virtue and good friendship. -- from back cover
