This is the angling section extracted from "The Accomplisht-Ladys Delight", 1675, attributed to Hannah Wooley, the original engraved portrait frontispiece and general title page to the "Accomplisht Ladys Delight" present at the front. This is a copy which has been taken apart and the angling section laid down on larger paper and ruled in red, originally a 12mo, now approximately 200 x 125 mm, 8 x 4¾ inches, engraved frontispiece of a lady and gentleman fishing, letterpress title page and 33 pages, plus 10 blank pages as padding at rear, no pagination due to trimming of margins, catchwords correct, an engraving of a fish follows the title page, (misplaced), bound in half sheep with marbled boards, marbled endpapers, bookbinder's ticket to first pastedown. Binding rubbed, hinges cracked at head of spine, covers still firmly attached, tips of corners worn with board slightly showing, slight shelf wear, rubbing to covers, crack between first free endpaper and frontispiece, no loose pages, small neat repair to first pastedown and first free endpaper, offset from frontispiece to title page, text has pale age-browning with occasional light mark, neat old ink note to blank endpaper, another to blank side of title page describing the book, otherwise a very good copy. The note on the endpaper gives the title and the following: "It was my dear brother's book which he had bound to his own liking", The last chapter has the heading " The names of the Flyes that are used in Angling, with the Times when they are in Season and what the Bodies and Wings are made of".
