A celebration of birds : the life and art of Louis Agassiz Fuertes by Robert McCracken Peck( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For those who know birds and their ways, Louis Agassiz Fuertes (1874-1927) is acclaimed as America's greatest painter of birds, an artist unsurpassed in the abillity to capture the "singular beauty of birds" and their truly lifelike appearance in natural settings. A Celebration of Birds is the most comprehensive book to date to examine the essence of Fuertes' genius; to illustrate how he worked as an artist, explorer, and natural scientist; and to assess his enormous influence in the worlds of fine art, ornithology, and birdwatching, a pursuit which his work did so much to popularize."--Jacket

Fishes of the Bahamas and adjacent tropical waters by James E Böhlke( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For nearly twenty-five years, recreational divers and marine scientists have relied on Fishes of the Bahamas and Adjacent Tropical Waters to identify the hundreds of inshore fish species found in the Caribbean and West Atlantic. Now this classic work, long out of print and prohibitively expensive in the used book market, is again available in an updated edition, which includes a new section that lists fifty-eight additional species and eighty-four nomenclature changes." "Five hundred sixty-seven tropical fish species are treated in this edition. The original entries provide information about the physical distinctions, coloration, distribution, and life history of each species. Seven hundred wash drawings, by artist-illustrator Steven Gigliotti, accompany the species descriptions and also illustrate family characteristics, such as body shape, fin size, and teeth and gill placement. In addition, thirty-two color plates include twenty paintings of the most colorful and striking species." "As useful today as when it was first published in 1968, this masterwork will remain an essential reference for any ichthyologist, marine researcher, serious sport diver, or fish naturalist."--BOOK JACKET
