8vo., First Major Edition, Large Paper, with a copper-engraved portrait frontispiece mounted on India Paper, engraved title-vignette, 13 fine copper-engraved plates (including 2 of music scores) all mounted on India Paper, and 77 woodcut illustrations and decorations in the text, some light offsetting from frontispiece to title, some very light and inoffensive spotting to some margins; most attractively bound in mid-nineteenth century green full roan, boards with quintuple frame border enclosing large and elaborate floral lozenge all in gilt, back with four flat bands, second and fourth compartments framed and lettered in gilt, first and fifth compartments frame in gilt, third extended compartment richly tooled in gilt to a floral design, all edges gilt, gilt doublures, green endpapers, blue silk marker, joints moderately rubbed else a very good, bright, clean copy. The first Major edition is based on the fifth edition of 1676, the last published during Walton's lifetime, and printed by Nicol at the Shakespeare Press. Major's typically extensive notes occupy pp.395-406. The plates are engraved by Cook and Pye from the old drawings by Wale which had been 'greatly heightened in the effect, by the pencil of Mr. Frederick Nash' (W&S). A nice, bright (if slightly aged) copy of what is generally regarded as the best edition of one of the finest and most desirable of the illustrated 'Anglers'. An edition of standard size with the plates on ordinary paper was published simultaneously. Coigny 23; Oliver 23; Slater p.28; Westwood & Satchell p.225. N° de ref. de la librería 17857
