The Complete Angler. Edited by Edward Jesse.

London: Henry G. Bohn, 1856.

First Jesse edition. Illustrated with 207 woodcuts, and an additional 26 full page engravings on steel. 1 vols. 8vo. With Extra Plates. Contemporary half green morocco, spine gilt, marbled sides, a.e.g. Rebacked preserving original spine. 1861 gift inscription on first blank Westwood & Satchell, p. 232; Coigney 71; Heckscher 2071. Item #345600

This edition was produced in two forms: "with 203 [actually 207] Engravings on Wood, price 5s, or with the addition of 26 Engravings on Steel, 7s 6d". This is the latter, and was well worth the extra half crown. A list of the engravings on steel precedes the Life of Walton.

A pleasing edition.
