Best Book Subtitle Ever

While compiling a research bibliography of early works on fly fishing, I came across this book: The Whole Art of Fishing: Being a Collection and Improvement of All that has been Written upon this Subject. London: Edmund Crull, 1714.

Surely, this book has the best subtitle ever conceived.  Perhaps my next book will be something like The Academic Study of Religion: Being a Collection and Improvement of All that has been Written upon this Subject. Or maybe Fly Fishing: Being a Collection and Improvement of All that has been Written upon this Subject.  Or even Life: Being a Collection and Improvement of All that has been Written upon this Subject. We’ll see.
