About this title


Translations of the three oldest European tracts on fishing, with an analysis from social, cultural and environmental perspectives.

From the Inside Flap:

'Appeals to diverse readers' interests. There is no question that the author accomplishes his goal to present critical editions of various fishers' tracts from the Late Middle Ages to the Renaissance. His translations also prove to be of first rate, and so his in-depth investigation of fishing as a craft during the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Age. At the same time Hoffmann never forgets that also lay people, especially fishing enthusiasts, might read his book, hence never relents in his efforts to describe his subject matter in a very clear, easily readable fashion understandable both for the expert and the lay person.'

'Neither scholars nor literate anglers should miss this milestone work. It opens a bright window on the early culture, context, and practice of fishing, and stands as an eloquent challenge to other researchers to expand the long-neglected study of this important part of European life.'
