Description: "Fishers' Craft and Lettered Art" Provides Editions, English translations, and analysis from social, cultural, and environmental perspectives on the three oldest European extended tracts on fishing. Richard Hoffmann explores the history of fishing in popular culture and outlines the economic and ecologic considerations needed to examine and understand the fishing manuals, which are presented in their original languages; Spanish and German; with facing page translations. Close attention is paid to original setting, functions, and possible range of readings, with detailed explanatory notes to help modern fishers and historians. Hoffmann further explores how continental fishing traditions were conveyed from oral craft practice into printed culture, and proposes that these manuals demonstrate a lively and complex interaction between written texts and popular culture.

Fishers' Craft and Lettered Art is a fascinating look at one vital aspect of everyday life at the end of the Middle Ages.
