An early British classic of angling first published in 1747 by Richard Bowlker; the second (1758) and all subsequent editions were credited to the son, Charles Bowlker. This Swinney and Hawkins edition is undated but World Cat lists two editions of the publisher; 1790 and 1806. Only the 1790 edition is noted as having "New Edition" in title. I only located one copy with this pagination which is on Worldcat. No records located. I think it is earlier than the date assigned.
