The Compleat Angler


We fell for this hook, line and sinker.


Anyone with half a head knows that Izaak Walton (who it seems could neither spell name nor title) wrote this famous book in 1653. This example was printed in 1939 – a first edition in Penguin form…stylishly illustrated by Gertrude Hermes…..

We particularly like the way the penguin is eyeing the fish on the plate on the cover….


Penguin 1939 – number 238

9 wood engravings

Slightly browned edges and no dust cover
