"This book ought to be largely circulated, not only on account of its scientific merits-though these, as we have in part shewn, are great and signal-but because it is popularly written throughout, and therefore likely to excite general attention to a subject which ought to be held as one of primary importance. Every one is interested about fishes-the political economist, the epicure, the merchant, the man of science, the angler, the poor, the rich. We hail the appearance of this book as the dawn of a new era in the natural history of England."-Quarterly Review, No 116.
