Magnificent CD-book edition from Pisces, making available again the authoritative monograph on British Naked-eyed Medusae first published in 1848, now only available in hardcopy for those book collectors with very deep pockets.

From the publisher's announcement:


Published by the Ray Society in 1848, British Naked-eyed Medusae covers a group which was little-studied at the time. Much of the nomenclature has since changed, but the species descriptions and the 13 plates of hand-coloured illustrations remain invaluable. Now produced on CD, for Windows PCs and Macs, with fully searchable text and hyperlinks for ease of navigation.

The quality of reproduction of illustrations and text is excellent. The book is in Adobe Acrobat pdf format (with free Reader software supplied), allowing high-quality printing of the text and plates.

In addition, the plates are available separately as high-resolution images.
