The 2 volume edition described as "One of the handsomest publications of modern times, an ornament to the Angler's Library, unique of its kind, and perhaps destined to remain so" (Chronicle of the Compleat Angler). "It has been acclaimed as the finest Angler ever published. It was the first edition to be divided into days, contains many editor's notes and comments, and has new material on Walton and Cotton" (Horne).

    Robert Hoe (1839-1909), an American producer of printing press machinery and one of the founders and first president of the Grolier Club, amassed a library of books considered to be the foremost in America. "Not only was Robert Hoe the greatest collector this country has ever produced, but he was a great student as well" (Chew).
