Yes, I have a copy. Whether it's worth the price, it depends on your needs.
Do you need to know the distribution and diversity of all freshwater fishes
in the world? For naturalists-aquarists, I'd say it's not worth the price.
For ichthyologists or those interested in taxonomy and zoogeography, I'd say
it's worth the price.
