The Open Sea: Fish and Fishers Part 2

£29.99

Product description

Very good condition hardback. Dustcover in very good condition and in protective mylar cover. Tight binding. Slight foxing to top edges of pages, otherwise internally clean and bright.

This is the sequel to the World of Plankton, the first part of Sir Alister Hardy's great survey of life in the Open Sea. It in fact deals with everything in the sea that depends on plankton. Once more it is the work of an enthusiast, written with the same lucidity and the same delightful style, both informal and informative, that was so highly praised when Part One was published. Indeed, to quote the Manchester Guardian, "the author is a complete master fo his subject and no comparable book has been published in this generation".
