Book Description

Article 1 - Bull. U.S. Fish Commission, 1895. Plates numbered A-J, 1-44, 45a-b, 46-54. Ten plates are from photographs, the rest are drawn from nature by the author; eight of the plates are fine chromolithographs illustrating developmental stages of the lobster. Francis Hobart Herrick (1858- 1940) was an American writer, natural history illustrator and Professor of Biology at Adelbert College of Western Reserve University. He specialised in embryology and biology of shellfish, his research focusing on the native lobsters. This book is a major study accompanied by a hundred detailed drawings by the author. He is also known for his critical biography of John James Audubon, as well as for being the first researcher to study the bald eagle in the field.
