    Some of you know that I am an avid collector of aquatic literature; someday, I hope to endow a "collection" in a library that will hopefully allow us to retain some of the aquatic literature that is being lost ...

    That said, I have a lot of book dealers that periodically send me notices about recent aquisitions they have run across ... many of which I try to pick up as budgets may allow ...

    Today in the mail, I received several that I found humorous enough to share here:

    Now here is one that I just want to rush right out and get ...
    1. Marine Diatoms from the Coasts of Iceland. 394 pages, 1918

    And often there are once in a lifetime opportunities to grab books that may disappear simply due to a lack of broad enough interest ...

    1. Freshwater Fishes of the USSR and Adjacent Countries. Over 1200 text figures and a colored folding map. 8 Volumes.
    2. Marine Fishes of the Pacific Coast of Mexico. 102 plates (43 colored). 1937
    3. Relationships of Some Marine ORganisms of the Northeast Pacific to Water Temperatures. 8 volumes. 1961
    4. Coastal Fishes of Oman. 1153 colored photographs. 1995
    5. The Fishes of West Virginia. 1995
    6. The Fishes of Ohio. 1957

    Then sometimes you run into a title that just sounds interesting ... this is one I want to play with ... electricity, water, and fish ... honest, I read about it in a book ...

    1. The Effects of Electric Currents on Fish. 52 text-figures. 1973

    I have some very old literature from the 1950's on aquatic plant horticulture.

    I'll likely make it available to the membership and see about a reprint for a months article.

    Anything that you (or anyone else) do not want, please drop me a quick note and I'll be happy to send you shipping money ... books ship really cheap via Media Mail ...
