Exotischen Zierfische in Wort und Bild
Dec 24th, 2017 at 10:06am
 
In 1914 the Vereinigten Zierfisch-Züchtereien (United Ornamental Fishbreeders), a commercial consortium of aquarists in Rahnsdorfer Mühle and previously in Conradshöhe, both districts of Berlin, published the 352-page book, Exotischen Zierfische in Wort und Bild (Exotic ornamental fishes in Words and Pictures). The organization described itself as being the “Main Headquarters for imports with the biggest selection, and rarest fish novelties and aquatic plants.” The book - over 100 years old - apparently is quite rare, the only known  copy being that held by the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum, Division of Fishes, although copies from this Institution are available from various sources here and in Germany.

Any aquarist interested in obtaining a copy of Exotischen Zierfische in Wort und Bild as well as a copy of my English translation of the egglaying killifish portion can download them from my DropBox using the following URL:

The download box for each of the two files is on the right with three dots in it. Click on  it and select Download.

I too wish to thank you very much for sharing these files, Dr. Klee.   Especially appreciated is all the effort you put in to translating it for English speakers!
