A short tear in K2 professionally repaired. The 'present editor' is Henry Ellis of the British Museum. The text is collated with that of 1676 (the last published during Walton's life) together with several corrections and the most complete Index to date. The engravings of fish are a new series; the facsimile signatures appear here for the first time, the plates are mostly by Audinet after Wale. A lovely, albeit slightly aged, copy in unusual themed binding. LARGE PAPER COPIES ARE SCARCE. Coigney 21; Oliver 19; Slater p. 28; Westwood & Satchell pp.224-25. N° de ref. de la librería 21807
