Fishes and Their Ways of Life

Louis Roule - Fishes and Their Ways of Life (1935)

A somewhat bland title for a slightly unusual look at swimming critters (not all fish).  For one thing there's a whole chapter on the fish that go into bouillabaisse, another on electric fish, another on shark's teeth, all in a somewhat elaborate but not overdone prose (translated from French).  Not a royal road to ichthyology but more like the scenic route.
