Better known as Allgemeine Naturgeschichte des Fische this is an appropriate use of new technology to present the work of one of the foremost taxonomists of his, or any other, day. The importance of Bloch's famous book, first published in 1795 and containing descriptions of over 500 species, has not lost its value for modern ichthyology. Many of Bloch's names are still in use today, as are several of the 19 generic names he proposed. Moreover, van Nassau's illustrations are still striking.
