Shagreen Ray

25 x 17 cm (9.75 x 6.75 inches)

This is a genuine antique print of fish by Jonathan Couch in 1877. By profession he was a doctor and wrote numerous articles for scientific, medical and historical journals. However, his most notable work was the first ever featuring colour plates of fish found in British waters "A History of the Fishes of the British Islands". The illustrations were hand coloured engravings made from his own paintings of recently caught fish.

This print is an authentic antique, not a reproduction and is in excellent condition.
