        The Compleat Angler or the Contemplative Man's Recreation,

      London: By T. Maxey for Rich. Marriot,, 1653. Being a Discourse of Fish and Fishing, Not unworthy the perusal of most Anglers. Octavo (136 × 85 mm), without final blank R4. Early 19th-century half calf, spine gilt-lettered direct, divided in compartments by decorative rolls with gilt roundels between, marbled sides, sprinkled edges. Early 20th-century morocco backed slipcase and chemise by James Macdonald Ltd, New York. Engraved title vignette, 6 engraved vignettes of fish, 2 pages of music. Blank flyleaf inscribed "Robert H. Meyricke from his Mother Mary Meyricke Octr. 28th 1882"; book label to front pastedown. Short tear without loss in I7, a few headl.ines cut close and very rarely shaving a letter (M3), fore-margin of the leaf of music at page 216 shaved with slight loss, light waterstains affecting a few leaves, overall a very good, honest copy of a work that is often found defective or made-up. First edition of the most famous work in angling literature. "A first Walton confers distinction upon its owner " (Westwood & Satchell). There are various typesetting errors in the first edition, although corrected and uncorrected sheets seem to have been issued indiscriminately, with little significance to the priority of issue. In the present copy "contention" (a mistake for "contentment") is uncorrected on page 245; the bass voice of Henry Lawes' "Angler's Song" (p. 217) is printed upside down, the idea being for two singers to stkand opposite each other sharing the score (this idea is abandoned in other copies). The second edition was heavily revised and expanded by more than one third, "which gives to [the first] edition an importance other than that due [to] its priority" (Pforzheimer). "The Compleat Angler was conceived as dialogue between men travelling on foot who each represented a different recreation. In the first edition there were two, Piscator (fisherman) and Viator (traveller) … By this means the art of fishing was introduced, defended, and expounded: its strong precedent in the fishermen apostles of the New Testament was established, the detail of baiting for, catching, and cooking different kinds of fish was catalogued, and the whole was accompanied by aphorisms which would show the reader what it might mean to live well … [The work] has commanded huge popularity: it has been reprinted almost as many times as A Pilgrim's Progress" (ODNB).

        Histoire générale des plantes, contenant XVIII livres également départis en deux tomes: Tirée de l'exemplaire latin de la bibliothèque de M. Jacques Dalechamps, puis faite françoise par M. Jean Des Moulins... Dernière édition corrigée...

Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spines in 6 compartments. The second and last French edition of Dalechamp's famous herbal. The first Latin edition was published 1586-87 followed in 1615 by the first French edition. The present edition is the most complete one in the French language. "Dalechamp is considered by some authorities to have been one of the most erudite of the French botanists of the 16th century. His book is a compilation of the botanical knowledge available at that date, and is important as it shows another grouping attemp at a classification of the plants which he described. A number of woodcuts were especially made for the book from plants sent to the author by Lobel, l'Ecluse, and others, but for the most part were taken from previously published works" (Hunt 154). Dalechamp was a student of Rondelet and among his regular correspondents were Conrad Gesner, Joseph Justus Scaliger, Robert Constantin and Jean Fernel. First two leaves of each volumes have the outer margins somewhat browned, else a fine copy. Nissen BBI, 447.

        An Humble Apologie for Learning and Learned Men,

      First (and only) Edition, viii, 263, [1]pp, 8vo, a good copy in recent panelled calf old style, London, T.M. for M.M., G. Bedell and T. Collins, 1653. Wing W.1048. Madan, Oxford Books, A Bibliography of Printed Works Relating to The University and City of Oxford, III, p.23 (item 2212): "Chiefly an appeal [for learning] on general grounds, but there is an historical section on pp.43-72..." Edward Waterhouse (1619-1670) was educated at Cambridge University but spent some years at Oxford in order to pursue his studies in the Bodleian Library. He later moved to Sion College London and it was during this period that he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society; eventually he became a preacher.Waterhouse's Humble Apologie for Learning and Learned Men was his first work. "My emulation is to propose Learning & Learned Men, as the Horsemen and Chariots of any Nation, and to discover that without them a People can expect nothing but Barbarity and Bestial Vulpinariness.. the More men are sunk in ignorance, and estranged from Arts and Sciences, the nearer come they to the life of Beasts and Savages: for unless the power of the mind, by which we are distinguished from Brutes, be by liberal sciences ordered and modified, all their virtue and nobility will degenerate into not only a likeness to, but into a degree of rudeness beyond beasts" (p.7) Waterhouse gives a survey of learning in Britain from the earliest times to his present, listing the colleges of the two Universities (Oxford and Cambridge) and giving historical notes (p.67ff). He goes on to defend the university and the scholar, particularly against the charges of unmanliness:"It is a vanity for men to hope to manage war well without learning, or Conduct from learned men, as grosse an one as for a blind man to boast of discerning the least imaginable Atom, without Organ or Medium thereto. I know there are many conclusive, that books Effeminate the mind, and by a kind of softness so Incandorate it, that no good look is reserved for Manly Acts.. But this is rather a Calumny, than a just Charge on Learning.. Experience tells us, that the greatest Actors and Actions that have ever been on this stage of earth performed, have been by learned men..." (p.126). Photograph available on request.
