WALTON, Izaak and Charles COTTON.

Burgh, woodcuts in text (D1 with segment torn from lower blank margin, D3 with tear at upper margin, occasional marginal staining or soiling), contemporary calf, dated in gilt on spine (joints cracked, extremities rubbed, corners bumped). Second edition by Moses Browne, the first appearing in 1750. Browne's edition of The Complete Angler was the first to be printed in the 18th century. Westwood comments: "Browne's editing was done with gusto; unfortunately the whim took him to prune and polish his author's style ... and to adapt him to the over-refined and artificial taste of the day, a sacrifice all reverend lovers of Isaac will find it hard to condone." W. & S. pp. 220-21.
