This 1879 double page color print of Physostomi (Bream, Roach &c.) is from W.F. Kirby's Natural History of Reptiles, Fishes, Amphibias, Insects, Worms, Mollusca, Zoophytes & C. for the Use of Young People, which was published in London by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge.  The print shows a Bream, Leuciscus orfus, Crucian Carp, Rudd, Roach, Chub, Leuciscus idus, and Dace against an off-white background.  The print measures 15.625" wide by 12.75" high and has been printed in shades of green, blue, yellow and orange with touches of pink and brown on fragile paper with a high acid content.  This 1879 Print of Bream, Roach, etc. from Natural History by W F Kirby is in good condition, having retained its original colors, sharp lines, and details of each scale.  The border, however, has discolored and has two small tears at the bottom.  Ideal for framing.
