“The printing of the work on special waterproof paper is a novel feature. Although more costly, this is a distinct advantage for enthusiasts who wish to identify fishes from a boat or at the water’s edge; the work can now be taken literally to sea, or to lakes and streams, without risk of water damage to the text.
With the increasingly rapid developments in marine and freshwater sciences, this book is expected to need revision before many years have passed. Such as additions to knowledge depend not only upon those working in well-equipped laboratories, but also upon observations of fishermen, naturalists and sportsmen who see the fishes at first hand in their own environment.”
