Sir Izaak Walton and His Pupil

A large English colored engraving of the “Compleat Angler” at work with a dandy pupil who has escaped the frippery of court for more meditative pursuits. (Fishing as yoga?)  Walton was a spiritual mentor, writer of hymns,  and biographer of John Donne, friend to Sir Henry Wotton, (his fellow angler). He wrote the famous tome about fishing which can now run about 9,ooo dollars a copy. If you are a fisherman, or you liked Zen and the Art of Motorcycles, you get my drift   in a beautiful frame.
