This 1879 double page print of Teleostei (Flat-Fish, Perches, &c) is from W.F. Kirby's Natural History of Reptiles, Fishes, Amphibias, Insects, Worms, Mollusca, Zoophytes & C. for the Use of Young People, published in London by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge.  The print shows a John Dory, a Plaice, a Holibut, a Perch, a Pike Perch, a Ruffe, a Red Mullet, a Wrasse and a Grey Mullet against an unembellished background.  The print measures 15.625" wide by 12.75" high and has been printed in rich colors (oranges, yellows, greens, and blues) on fragile paper with a high acid content.  This 1879 Print of Flat Fish, Perches, &c from Natural History by W F Kirby is in good condition, having retained its original colors and sharp lines.  (You cannot only see each fish scale but the pattern within each scale.)  The border has discolored and has small tears.  There is a 1" tear at the bottom of the center fold line and slightly yellowing along the fold.
