Description du livre London printed by J. Grismond. for Rich. Marriot, 1661. Hardcover. État : Very Good. 3rd Edition. THIRD EDITION MUCH ENLARGED 1661. Small 8vo, approximately 150 x 90 mm, 5¾ x 3½ inches, FACSIMILE TITLE PAGE, 10 small copperplate engravings of fish in the text, attributed to Pierre Lombart, 2 pages of the words and music to "The Anglers Song" set by Henry Lawes, the second page printed upside down to facilitate part singing, pages: , 255, , collation A-S8, bound in full brown modern morocco, double ruled gilt border to covers with decorative blind border inside, gilt rules and decoration between raised bands to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. Pages very lightly-age browned, some margins slightly trimmed, just shaving running title a couple of times, occasional light brown mark in lower margins, small piece torn from 1 top corner with loss of page number (no doubt because wrongly numbered 78 instead of 87), final page of index browned in the margins. A very good clean copy (lacking original title page as noted). "A Short Discourse by way of Post-script, touching the Lawes of Angling" printed in black letter begins the final unpaginated section on S1r, followed by the Contents Table and the Index. Except for a few changes the third edition is identical with the second edition. The commendatory verses by Alexander Brome are omitted, and the chapter on the "Lawes of Angling" is for the first time included. The publisher Marriott transferred some copies of the sheets of the third edition to Simon Gape who provided them with a new title page with his name and dated 1664, but of course otherwise identical to the edition of 1661. Copies of these are scarce and are usually known as the 1664 third edition. As we are lacking the title page we cannot say whether ours is the 1661 third or the Gape third, at all events ours was certainly printed in 1661.
