"In the literature of ichthyology, Bloch's descriptive and richly illustrated Allgemeine Naturgeschichte der Fische is one of the high points, both graphically and taxonomically." (Ellen B. Wells).
The work describes and illustrates the fishes of the world in a superb hand colouring, sometimes heightened with silver and gold and/or Arabic Gum to accentuate the metallic sheen of the fish scales. It is the most beautifull book on fishes ever published. The drawings were primarily done by Johan Friedrich August Krueger and Johan Friedrich Henning.
