The Compleat Angler Part II
1998. [ANGLING]. COTTON, Charles. The Compleat Angler Part II. Being Instructions How to Angle for a Trout or Grayling in a Clear Stream. With an Afterword by John McDonald.xx, 55, [5] pp. 8vo., bound in recent half morocco over paper boards. New York: Timken Editions, 1998.Limited Edition of 101 copies. Cotton's text of 1676 has always been of more appeal to fly-fishermen than Walton's observations on angling, which derived from information culled from earlier works. Cotton was the first significant author on fly-fishing in English, and as such he represents as the true forefather of fly-fishermen. He records some sixty-five trout fly dressings as well as many observations on the requirements of fly-fishing.This edition is handsomely printed and makes delicate use of piscatorial decorative ornaments printed in green throughout. The ornaments are taken from the frontispiece of the 1653 Compleat Angler. Printed letterpress on handmade paper. Signed by McDonald and Timken.
