Grant's Guide to Fishes: The Fisherman's Bible 12th Edition, E. M. Grant
2 Grant's Guide to Fishes: The Fisherman's Bible 12th Edition
E. M. Grant Australia Grant's Fish Books 2014 0646141066 / 9780646141060 12th Edition Hardcover New Book 25.0 x 18.0 x 5.0 
Grant's Guide to Fishes. The Fisherman's Bible. 12th Edition. 880 pages with 1078 Fish, Sharks and Rays. 1007 colour photographs. Ern Grant has spent more than 60 years catching fish and half that time photographing them. Grant's Guide to Fishes has become an Australian institution in fishing circles - it's subtitle "The Fisherman's Bible" was coined by its many loyal followers and readers. It has its origin almost 50 years ago, with the first edition produced in 1965, and since then, 116,500 copies have been produced, making it arguably the longest-running and best-known book on fish identification in Australia. Although originally Queensland-centric, it now covers all commonly-caught fish across Australia. It contains: 1078 fish, sharks & rays. 1007 colour photographs, many full-plates, and all bled to the page edge for maximum size. A new pictorial index called "A Guide to the Guide", a photo index of typical types of fish. For example, if you see something like a whiting, and find a fish like it in this index, it leads you to a page of whiting. Therefore, other whiting can be found in that part of the book. Grant's Guide to Fishes is well-known across the country, and copies have sold in every state. It is an institution, and many readers have commented that no other book comes close to its quality and the ability to identify an Australian fish. The author, Ern Grant, spent most of his career as Queensland ichthyologist (fish scientist) and amassed an enormous knowledge and photographic record of Australian fish through his lifetime. He continues to write and update the book at age 90, and the latest 12th edition is a continuing evolution of this lifetime's work. Grant's Guide to Fishes is the culmination of a journey which can trace its origins in 1963. Asked by his mentors and seniors in the then Department of Harbours & Marine to produce a guide to commercial fishes in Queensland, Ern Grant wrote a small black-and-white production called Know Your Fishes. From this humble beginning came the first Guide to Fishes, produced also by the Queensland Government, and starting in 1965 with its first edition. This book had no photographs, but relied on the then-common method of identification through painstaking drawings by delineators (very skilled draftsmen/artists). However, Ern's contacts said: "Surely even a poor photograph is better to identify a fish than a great drawing?" And so began a lifetime of work in collecting a massive range of fish - in photographs. Many of these were hand-captured by net, line or chasing down over sand, mud or coral reefs and collecting by hand-scoop. The second edition in 1972 received the benefit of the first set of these photographs, and the Government editions ended in 1982 with the fifth edition of Guide to Fishes. Initially unable to gain permission to update the Government Guide to Fishes once in retirement, Grant went on to produce a brand new book, Fishes of Australia privately in 1987, and Corals of the Great Barrier Reef in 1991. This new private production of the Guide, as Grant's Guide to Fishes, first appeared in 1993 with the sixth edition, and it and later editions achieved the same measure of public acceptance as before. Each edition is edited to take advantage of new technology, new photographs, and updated information on fish identification, groupings and maximum sizes. For example, Ern worked on the 12th edition for 6 years, and has continued evolving, updating and improving it over previous editions. This is a heavy book weighing 2.5kg.

Gregory Czechura Australia Queensland Museum 2013 0980569281 / 9780980569285 Hardcover New Book 26.0 x 21.8 x 3.4 cm 
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world's last great wilderness areas. Its unique environment supports an astonishing and almost unequalled biodiversity, from microscopic plankton to whales. The human history of the Reef is no less intriguing. Indigenous Australians have known the Reef for millennia and their Dreaming stories offer tantalising glimpses of a truly ancient world. Europeans first encountered the Reef some 500 years ago, but have only recently begun to understand its almost unimaginable complexity. This book weaves these equally vibrant strands of natural and cultural heritage into a single narrative that leads the reader on their own voyage of discovery through one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The definitive guide to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the world's last great wilderness areas, includes: 440 pages of information covering the biological, ecological, cultural and historical significance of the reef and over 1300 beautiful full colour images and illustrations.
