Title: The Compleat Angler
Author: Charles Cotton, Izaak Walton - Izaak Walton was an English writer. Best known as the author of "The Compleat Angler" (1653), he also wrote a number of short biographies that have been collected under the title of "Walton's Lives."

Editor: Richard Le Gallienne
Publisher: John Lane The Bodley Head Ltd.
City: London
Year: 1931
Binding Style: Hardcover
Pagination: lxxxix/454 pages plus 12 pages of Angler's calendar
Width: 5.5" Height: 7.5"
Book Details: "The Compleat Angler" was first published in 1653, but Walton continued to add to it for a quarter of a century. It is a celebration of the art and spirit of fishing in prose and verse; 6 verses were quoted from John Dennys's 1613 work "Secrets of Angling." It was dedicated to John Offley, his most honoured friend. There was a second edition in 1655, a third in 1661 (identical with that of 1664), a fourth in 1668 and a fifth in 1676. In this last edition the thirteen chapters of the original had grown to twenty-one, and a second part was added by his friend and brother angler Charles Cotton, who took up Venator where Walton had left him and completed his instruction in fly fishing and the making of flies.
Walton did not profess to be an expert with a fishing fly; the fly fishing in his first edition was contributed by Thomas Barker, a retired cook and humorist, who produced a treatise of his own in 1659; but in the use of the live worm, the grasshopper and the frog "Piscator" himself could speak as a master. The famous passage about the frog, often misquoted as being about the worm-"use him as though you loved him, that is, harm him as little as you may possibly, that he may live the longer"-appears in the original edition. The additions made as the work grew did not affect the technical part alone; quotations, new turns of phrase, songs, poems and anecdotes were introduced as if the author, who wrote it as a recreation, had kept it constantly in his mind and talked it over point by point with his many friends. There were originally only two interlocutors in the opening scene, "Piscator" and "Viator"; but in the second edition, as if in answer to an objection that "Piscator" had it too much in his own way in praise of angling, he introduced the falconer, "Auceps," changed "Viator" into "Venator" and made the new companions each dilate on the joys of his favourite sport.
The best-known old edition of the "Angler" is J Major's (2nd ed., 1824). The book was edited by Andrew Lang in 1896, followed by many other editions. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

Title: Bibliotheque des croisades
Author: Joseph Francois Michaud - Joseph Francois Michaud was a French historian and publicist.

He was born at Albens, Savoie, educated at Bourg-en-Bresse, and afterwards engaged in literary work at Lyon, where the French Revolution first aroused the strong dislike of revolutionary principles which manifested itself throughout the rest of his life. In 1791 he went to Paris, where, at great risk to his own safety, he took part in editing several royalist journals. In 1796 he became editor of La Quotidienne, for which he was arrested after the 13th of Vendémiaire; he evaded his captors, but was sentenced to death par contumace by the military council. Having resumed the editorship of his newspaper on the establishment of the Directory, he was again proscribed on the 18th of Fructidor, but after two years returned to Paris, when the Consulate had superseded the Directory.

His Bourbon sympathies led to a brief imprisonment in 1800, and on his release he temporarily abandoned journalism, and began to write and edit books. Along with his brother and two colleagues he published in 1806 a "Biographie moderne ou dictionnaire des hommes qui se sont fait un nom en Europe, depuis 1789," the earliest work of its kind; and in 1811 appeared the first volume of his "Histoire des croisades" ("History of the Crusades") and also the first volume of his "Biographie universelle." In 1814 he resumed the editorship of La Quotidienne, and in the same year was elected Academician. In 1815 his brochure entitled "Histoire des quinze semaines ou le dernier règne de Bonaparte" met with extraordinary success, passing through twenty-seven editions within a very short time.

His political services were now rewarded with the cross of an officer in the Legion of Honour and the modest post of king's reader, of which last he was deprived in 1827 for having opposed Peyronnet's "Loi d'Amour" against the freedom of the Press. In 1830-1831 he travelled in Syria and Egypt for the purpose of collecting additional materials for the "Histoire des croisades"; his correspondence with a fellow explorer, Jean Joseph François Poujoulat, consisting practically of discussions and elucidations of various points in that work, was afterwards published ("Correspondance d'Orient," 7 vols., 1833-1835). Like the Histoire, it is more interesting than exact. The "Bibliothèque des croisades," in four volumes more, contained the "Pièces justificatives" of the Histoire. Michaud died at Passy, where his home had been since 1832.

His "Histoire des croisades" was published in its final form in six volumes in 1840 under the editorship of his friend Poujoulat (9th ed., with appendix, by Huillard-Bréholles, 1856). Michaud, along with Poujoulat, also edited "Nouvelle collection des mémoires pour servir de l'histoire de France" (32 vols., 1836-1844). (Courtesy of Wikipedia)
