Pair of Large Panels Depicting Twenty Four Fish Engravings
Pair of large panels depicting twenty four fish engravings taken from The Natural History of Fishes from the British Isles by Jonathan Couch. (1789-1870). All twenty four can be hung separately if required.
c. 1840
Couch's principal work was done in ichthyology. In 1835 he obtained a prize offered by Mr. J. Buller of Morval for the best natural history of the pilchard, printed in the third report of the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society, and also separately. He had before this given much assistance to Bewick in his British Quadrupeds, as well as in relation to his projected Natural History of British Fishes, and Yarrell was still more indebted to him in his British Fishes, to all three editions of which (1836, 1841, and 1859) Couch was a copious contributor.
