1. Karl Rühmer - Die Süsswasserfische und Krebse deren naturfarbige und lebensnahe Darstellung, Vorkomen, Standplätze... - 1952

A beautiful collection of 87 fine fish plates, and 5 more of edible freshwater crabs and crayfish. Finely illustrated in full colour. Page size 25 x 17 cm.
This work deals with fresh water fishes from Central Europe, for instance the Rhine, Danube, and many other rivers and lakes.

The full title reads: "Die Süsswasserfische und Krebse deren naturfarbige und lebensnahe Darstellung, Vorkomen, Standplätze...""

Written by Dr Karl Rümher, the fine plates are after watercolours by the author.

Published in München, 1952. Oblong size, 203 pp., red cloth with large gilt title on the front board and spine.

An unmarked, almost as new copy. Truly in mint condition.

2. A catalogue of the fresh-water fishes of South America.

Washington, DC, United States National Museum, 1892. 8vo. (24 x 15 cm.) 81 pp. slightly later half cloth over marbled boards. Red morocco label with gilt title on the spine.

Rare early catalogue, with many distribution tables and some taxonomical notes. In the rear is a second paper, by Carl Eigenmann alone, titled "The fishes of San Diego, California" (56 pp., nine plates). This deals with marine species. Both works were published in the Museum' s Proceedings. A nicely bound item.

Dean I, p. 366.

3. Contributions to the natural history of the fresh water fishes of North America. I. A monograph of the cottoids.

Washington, DC, Smithsonian Institution, 1850. 4to. 32 x 23 cm.) 80 pp., three fine lithographed plates. Disbound (no wrappers).

The author discusses the cottoid genera in-depth, proving beyond doubt that what once was believed to be a single holarctic species (occurring throughout Eurasia and North America) actually comprises a quite diverse group of taxa. No wrappers. Small stamp on title page, and plate versos (shing through), otherwise good.

Dean I, p. 475.

In all a nice set of well-illustrated and important works on freshwater fish. Pleasing the eye; useful for identification purposes, and a good introduction to fish systematics.
