        The Complete Angler, or, The Contemplative Man's Recreation of Izaak Walton and Charles Cotton

      London- Privately Printed for the Navarre Society Limited, 1925 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A handsome early twentieth century edition of Walton and Cotton'scelebration of the art and spirit of fishing in prose and verse. Bound in cloth with gilt lettering and decoration. With gilt edge tops. Includesseven plates, including frontis, and numerous in-text illustrations. Collated complete. The Complete Angler was conceived as dialogue between men travelling on foot who each represented a different recreation. 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 - ODNB. Izaak Walton (1593-1683) was an English writer who seems to have been spent the last forty years of his life in ideal leisure and occupation. The Complete Angler was first published in 1653, but Walton continued to add to it for a quarter of a century. Charles Cotton (1630-1687) was an English poet and writer, best-known for translating the work of Michel de Montaigne from the French, and for his contributions to The Complete Angler. John Major(17821849) was abookseller and publisher whose most famous publication, which he edited himself, was an illustrated edition of Izaak Walton and Charles Cotton's Complete Angler in 1823; there were new editions in 1824, 1835, 1844, and 1847, with many reprints - ODNB. Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm, with once instance of the cords exposed. There is only some slight wear to the extremities, with just some slight bumping. Internally the pages are generally bright and clean, with very light occasional spots to the endpapers. Overall the condition is very good indeed..

        Calligraphic manuscript with original watercolor, being a lengthy passage from Knut Hamsun's "Pan: From the papers of Lieutenant Thomas Glahn" (in German)

      Frankfurt 1925 - CALLIGRAPHIC MANUSCRIPT ON PAPER: 10 pages, including an ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR BY THE ARTIST, AND BOUND BY HER. Written on Flinsche Paper (Frankfurt). Large "modernist" watercolor illustration on first leaf (evidence of deep pencil scratch in outer margin), on the recto a manuscript dedication (dated June 1925) being a six-line poem by Nietzsche entitled "Ecce Homo" (the inscription is signed by "Stefan"). Bound in original beige linen over boards (worn and slightly stained). Overall in good antiquarian condition An accomplished calligraphic manuscript, presenting a poignant passage from Knut Hamsun's "Pan: from the papers of Lieutenant Thomas Glahn" (Chapter XXIII). The manuscript was written and bound by a young Frankfurt artist who appears to have faded into almost complete obscurity; we believe that the artist was Elisabeth Louise Satori, born in Oberrad (Frankfurt) in 1907. She would have been 18 years of age at the time the present manuscript was written. The Frankfurt Institut fur Stadtgeschichte very kindly supplied us with information that her father was Heinrich Satori (born in Wiesbaden in 1877) and her mother was Elisabeth, nee Kircher (born in Frankfurt in 1886). They married in 1905 and resided in Oberrad, a suburb of Frankfurt, where they raised a family of two children: Heinrich Jr. (born 1905) and Elisabeth Louise. In the 1951 Frankfurt City Directory, the name of Heinrich Satori (Junior), a gardener, appears alongside that of Elisabeth (Louise) Satori, residing at the same address. The manuscript dedication is Nietzsche's 6-line 'Ecce Homo': "Ja, ich weiss woher ich stamme! / Ungesattigt gleich der Flamme, / Glhe und verzehr ich mich, / Licht wird alles was ich fasse, / Kohle alles was ich lasse: / Flamme bin ich sicherlich!" / See also the Werdenfelser Kunstlerlexikon (Kunsterlexikon des Werdenfelser Landes) published online by Antiquariat Benkert.
