Authentic illustrations 3 décembre 2012
Par R. Arnold - Publié sur
Format: Relié
In preparing this wonderful book, the author, and publisher, the famous Taschen GmbH of Köln, Germany, have gone to extremes to reproduce an exact and faithful facsimile of an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, early 18th-century manuscript on fishes that gives us a unique glimpse of what marine science was like 300 years ago. It is unfortunate that a previous reviewer has completely misinterpreted the intent of this publication, with naive complaints about "incredibly disappointing quality." Should the bits of dirt, smeared ink, etc., have been removed prior to publication? Surely not! One must view and understand "Tropical Fishes" in its proper context, as a true facsimile rather than a modern, glossy, run-of-the-mill coffee-table book.

Incredibly disappointing quality 21 novembre 2012
Par Amanda - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I think the subject really says most of it. I was surprised that the illustrations were not cleaned up before printing, and dirt and other miscellaneous marks are present in the reproductions. Most books like this have heavy stock, slightly glossy paper: this allows higher resolution printing, crisper lines, and brighter colors. The paper on this book was beige, thin, and finely corrugated. The result is that the colors are all affected by the beige background and the illustrations are not sharp. Some of the illustrations run into the gutter of the page, the area next to the spine that is lost because the width of the bookblock prevents fully opening the pages. Worst of all, the ink bleeds through on nearly every single page, and in some cases, through to the following page. On one page, it looks like the pages were bound together before the ink had dried, because the ink smeared across the mirroring page, ruining both pages. These are elementary mistakes than even a beginning graphic design student would never make. I am so glad I only paid something like 10% of full price for this.

It's still an interesting book for a marine biologist, and it was deeply discounted, so I'm keeping it for myself. I would, however, never buy something of such poor quality as someone for a gift.

Absolutely gorgeous book 11 mai 2013

I find it difficult to believe this fabulous edition of facsimile paintings would ever get below 5 stars! The quality and attention to colour correction and size is so wonderful! I'm going to make more purchases of this book as presents. Like all Taschen editions, this is truly superb!
Exactly as I had expected 1 octobre 2013
Par Scott Schultz - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As a antique print collector I was specifically hoping for a true rendering of the actual late 17th to early 18th century natural history illustrations as advertised. Samuel Fallour's first color catalogue of fish was only printed to 100 copies, effectively making it as author Prof. Ted Pietsche put it; " one of the rarest natural history books on earth". Already familiar with the work and knowing full well I'll never get my hands on any originals, this was hopefully going to be the next best thing. Happily Taschen doesn't disappoint! They certainly didn't create this specific format by accident or incompetence, quite the contrary; as the reader you just have to posses enough background knowledge to appreciate it!
