It has been some time since we had a decent facsimile and this new title has
been widely and very well reviewed and deserves a mention :

Tropical Fishes of the East Indies by Samuel Fallours

2010. 33 x 30cm (13" x 12"). Pp.224. Hardbound. GBP44.99, approx USD$70.00.

A zenith in zoological illustration - the hand-coloured, almost surrealistic
paintings of tropical fishes of the East-Indies made between 1703-1715 are
now available in perfect facsimile. Large folio format facsimile, weighing
about 2½ kg. Each page is reproduced on heavy, embossed paper; even the

These beautiful, elaborately detailed and brilliantly coloured drawings bear
extraordinary witness to the marine fish fauna of the East Indies and can
still be interpreted in light of present-day scientific knowledge. From an

Destined to sell out fairly quickly, a must have for your library.
