Small 8vo, approximately 150 x 95 mm, 5¾ x 3¾ inches, pages: (8), 111 plus [1] advert page for fishing tackle by John Margrave. the Licence leaf precedes the title page, dated April 5, bound in modern half morocco, matching cloth covers, gilt lettering between 2 raised bands to spine, new cream endpapers. 1 page has outer margin trimmed and is slightly ragged at bottom, not affecting text, 2 tiny marginal repairs, not affecting text, occasional pages are slightly dusty, mostly to margins, a few margins at the end have very pale stain to outer margins, not affecting text, some small strips of offset from turn ins to edges of endpapers, pale offset from monogram to half-title, otherwise a very good copy. This is the first edition of Cotton's part of the Compleat Angler. It appeared for the first time with Walton's 5th edition and Venables 4th edition of The Experienced Angler in a volume entitled the Universal Angler in 1676. The general title page of this states that these three titles "may be bound together, or sold each of them severally". This copy is probably one of those sold separately.
