The compleat angler by Izaak Walton( Book )

755 editions published between 1653 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 7,831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An immediate success upon its initial publication in 1653, The Compleat Angler has since become the most reprinted secular book in the English language. Here we join Piscator, Venator, and Auceps on a morning journey through the English countryside as Piscator advises on catching and eating different species of fish and expounds upon the satisfactions of the fisherman's life. 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

First published in 1653, The Compleat Angler is a book that both informs and delights in the purest sense of these words. Izaak Walton's classic celebration of fishing's subtle intricacies and the joys of submerging oneself, often quite literally, in the natural world is itself ingenious and reflective. A fisherman, hunter, and falconer discuss the merits of their respective pursuits. The "angler" argues that "the very sitting by the river's side is...the quietest and fittest place for contemplation," and details his favorite methods for catching, eating, and most effectively enjoying all varieties of fish. This modern English edition, illustrated by Arthur Rackham, brings The Compleat Angler to the attention of a new generation of readers, fishers, and nature lovers. As Thomas McGuane writes in his introduction, Izaak Walton's advice and instruction reach across time to remind us that "The Compleat Angler is not about how to fish but about how to be."
