Contains practical instructions for constructing, stocking, and maintaining a tank, and for collecting plants and animals. Philip Henry Gosse (1810-1888) coined the term 'aquarium' in 1854 and set off the Victorian craze for keeping them in the home. His classic Handbook offers simple, practical advice for the beginner. This second edition, much improved by first-hand experience, captures Gosse at the height of his influence. A Fellow of the Royal Society, Gosse was one of Britain's great naturalists of the seaside, an expert on sea anemones, and a widely admired science writer. Over 150 years old, his Handbook is a fascinating window into the earliest days of aquarium keeping. Complete facsimile of 1856 edition.
