LIFE or Izaak WALTON, BY THOMAS Zouch .
There are no colours in the fairest sky,
In offering this edition of Walton's Lives to the public it need only be observed, that it is founded upon the one which Mr. Major, with his usual taste in embellishing the Text of Walton, put forth some years back.
The Notes which were then collected at the end of the work, are now brought to the foot of the page, with some few alterations and additions. It is hoped that this volume, while it may assume the character of a Library Book, is thus rendered, in itself; a complete pocket companion to the admirer of the exquisite simplicity of the pure old English Author and the incomparable men he commemorates.
The collation of the text is thus referred to in the former edition ;
“Life of Dr. Donne, originally prefixed to the first volume " of his Sermons, 1640, Fol. Second Edition, alone, 1658, “12mo. Life of Sir Henry Wotton, attached to the Reliquiæ “Wattonianæ, 1651, 12mo., other editions, 1654, 1672, 1685. “Life of Richard Hooker, First Edition, 1665, small oc“tavo; Second ditto, attached to the Ecclesiastical Polity, *1666, Folio.
