[…] The Whole forming a Work of real Utility, Comprising Objects too numerous to be detailed in a Title Page, and of a very different nature from those insignificant Pamphlets hitherto published, which treat chiefly of angling in the Thames, the New River, and other Waters of equal consequence about London.
