scarce American contribution on fishes of Japan

Early and scarce American contribution on fishes of Japan. The work was published as vol. 2 of C. Perry' s Expedition to Japan. The colouring of the plates is excellent."The material used for this paper consists of spirited figures of sixty kinds of fish, principally valuable from their having been taken from recently procured specimens" (page 1 of the text). Signature of Robinson 1864 on title.
