***The FIRST edition in 25 years of the second most printed book in English Language history!
Book Signing - The Compleat Angler - New Edition
Saturday, May 3, 1:30-3 p.m.
The first scholarly edition in more than 25 years of "The Compleat Angler," Izaak Walton's timeless classic. First written in 1653, "The Compleat Angler" is the second most reprinted book in the English language...second only to the King James Bible. It is one of the most influential books of all times, as Walton brought together the conservation, recreational, and philosophical aspects of fishing and our natural resources. It also forged and inspired the beliefs of the Midwestern outdoorsmen who formed the Izaak Walton League of America, one of our leading conservation organizations.
Iowa has one of the strongest IWLA memberships therefore Bass Pro Shops Altoona is the only store in the country to host this special event. Renowned editor Marjorie Swann will be here for the book sale and signing and to visit about her newly added introduction to the work, and 50 pages of explanatory notes that help put the book in today’s context.
