Just a quote from page one:' No one knows who first had the happy thought of putting little fishes into glass bowls where their beautiful colors and graceful movements could be easily observed. It is not a new idea. Aquarium keeping is many centuries old. It might have been originated by the Egyptians in ancient times. They knew how to blow glass and the warm waters of Egypt are full of curious and gaily colored small fishes.' Exquisite book for the aquarium lover. 254 pages.
