About this book

A superabundant biosphere, the ocean houses a vast array of life-forms a great many of which lie hidden in the deep. For centuries, naturalists have catalogued these species and created intricately detailed illustrations of each creature.

Here, in The Anatomy of the Sea, you'll find fascinating profiles and classic illustrations of more than 600 specimens, showcased in all their diverse glory. Showing us aquatic life through the eyes of the early naturalists, authors David Ponsonby and Georges Dussart pair Victorian engravings, woodcuts, and drawings with intriguing text telling of the naturalists' quest for discovery, the species' classification, their complex composition, and habitats.
