EMERTON - THE GREEN CRAB print

£24.00

These striking engravings of crustacea are from the beautifully illustrated and historically important "Fisheries and Fishery Industries of the United States," a multi-volume enterprise published by the U.S. Fish Commission from 1884 - 1887.

The renowned ichthyologist, George Brown Goode, headed a large scientific team to research and write this work, describing marine life and their life histories, fishing equipment and methods, fisheries statistics, and fish culture and propagation.

With fine recent professional handcolouring, this superbly detailed drawing by J.H. Emerton is from a specimen obtained at Wood's Hall, Mass. 1882.

Condition: Overall very good, may have minor imperfections expected with age. Copy of title page included.
Size: 23 x 29.5 cm 9 x 11½ inches approx.
